THE FAR FORESTS: TALES OF ROMANCE, FANTASY, AND SUSPENSE. New York: The Viking Press, . Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Collects fifteen stories. One of her best collections of short fiction for young adults. Most of these stories are in A TOUCH OF CHILL (which follows) and A BUNDLE OF NERVES (which precedes). The collection is like her other US collection, NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED (1974), in that it doesn't correspond exactly to any UK first edition. Barron, ed., Fantasy and Horror (1999) 7-3. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with mild rubbing at lower spine end and upper corner tips and minor crease at lower corner of front flap. A lovely copy and scarce thus. (#164447).
