Queer Doings at Quantham.
by Wilfred Robinson, 1955.
An obvious to place to start. An inspiring work.
This is the first edition of Frederick Warne & Co, 1955.
The illustrator of the all-important dust jacket was AW Knott,
who had a great way with a bollard.
I have to confess that I purchased this one online after finding it on a greeting card, rather than simply stumbling across it.
