Little Nell


How Nell Scored
by Bessie Marchant. London: Thomas Nelson & Sons.(The ‘Peerless Series’). nd. c.1950.

The evergreen Bessie Marchant has supplied my collection with a few gems, this and Nancy Afloat were founding acquisitions. This one must have been very popular: I keep finding copies. This particular one was given as a Christmas gift in 1955.

The illustrator is not given, but the signature on the jacket looks like ‘Johnstone’ or similar.

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
