1 Beagle, Peter S. A Fine and Private Place
New York Viking 1960 First Edition Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Marbled green boards quarterbound in green cloth. The spine is stamped in dark green. Octavo. 272pps. There are a few small and faint specks to the closed top edge and the tips are gently rubbed, otherwise fine: clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The George Salter designed dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has shallow, 1/4" chipping at the top of the spine, light rubbing wear at the extremities, and a slightly sundarkened rear white panel; the original price (3.95) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of Beagle's first novel, a classic of fantasy literature.

"Conversing in a mausoleum with the dead, an eccentric recluse is tugged back into the world by a pair of ghostly lovers bearing an extraordinary gift -- the final chance for his own happiness. When challenged by a faithless wife and aided by a talking raven, the lives of the living and the dead may be renewed by courage and passion, but only if not belatedly. Told with an elegiac wisdom, this delightful tale of magic and otherworldly love is a timeless work of fantasy imbued with hope and wonder."
