  1. Hi Alexander,

    I have an edition of The Pearl lying around. I just check it. It is published as Heinemann Educational Books, under The New Windmill Series, illustrated by Vera Jarman, in 1976. If you like I can send you some photos.

    You are really passionate about bibliography!

    1. That would be very nice. I haven't read "The Pearl", but it would be fascinating to see the illustrations.

      As a mostly author-orientated reader, I find bibliographies useful - and uncommonly scarce on the Web. Same with discographies. I find it very rewarding to study artists in their entirety. In the case of authors, it certainly makes biographies superfluous.

      PS Just wait to see my updated version of Stott. A real masterpiece! :-)
