Mary Norton – The Borrowers and The Borrowers Afield 1st Edition

Norton-Borrowers-Firsts

I’ve just picked up these two treasures, a third printing of The Borrowers and a first edition of The Borrowers Afield by Mary Norton, with illustrations by Diana Stanley. This is the first time I have seen these in hardcover and they are just gorgeous.
