Author: Stella Waring & Sheila Ray
Publisher: Girls Gone By
Format: Large Size Paperback
This lavishly illustrated book is a must for all those who are interested in the books of Elsie Oxenham. An in-depth study by two noted researchers in this field, the book deals with the major themes occurring throughout EJO's books from Goblin Island in 1907 to Two Queens at the Abbey in 1959. Sheila Ray and Stella Waring also have a close look at the real life locations that EJO used for the fictional settings of her books. The book is illustrated not only with reproductions of numerous dustwrappers and interior illustrations from her books, but also photographs of the locations and helpful maps. The maps include not only accurate geographical maps by Peter Jolly but also, in full colour, the beautiful pictorial map of the locations which Edna Golder produced some years ago.
