Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1963. Hardcover First Edition
First US printing. Miss Clare looks back at her long life, much of it spent teaching at the Fairacre school, a life which spanned two world wars (including one in which she lost her lover.) Illustrated by J. S. Goodall. The true first US edition - False firsts of Miss Read's books are very common: since the Family Bookshelf editions of these books include a priced dj and the first edition statement, they are often misidentified, even though the Bookshelf editions are more cheaply produced. Very good in very good+ dust jacket. .
