The Very Fine Clock
Muriel Spark's first book for children
First UK edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 17.5 × 23.5cm, unpaginated.
Muriel Spark's first book for children, illustrated with dustwrapper and thirteen full-page drawings by Edward Gorey, is the story of Ticky the clock. Ticky is extremely wise, and a professor and his friends vote to bestow upon him the title of Professor. But Ticky declines the honour...
The book is in very good condition with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper has been neatly price-clipped and has some light creasing to the edges and some very light surface grubbying.
