Winter Holiday First edition 1933

Jonathan Cape, London - hardback

Dedicated to "The Clan McEoch of Francis Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts". This family wrote to Ransome saying that they had not only acted out the stories but had adapted them to make their own adventure tales.

Rare copies of this edition do appear, but dust-wrapper copies are very hard to come by indeed. One can pay several hundred pounds for a fine copy with dust-wrapper.
