Bradley, Helen AND MISS CARTER WORE PINK: Scenes From An Edwardian Childhood
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, (1972). First U.S. edition. Hardcover. Faint hint of soiling to extremities, small bump to upper edge of front cover, owner's small address label to front pastedown, else near fine; in a price-clipped dust jacket with mild dampstaining to spine head, tiny closed edge tear to rear panel.
Born in England in 1900, Bradley was over 60 when she began to paint - to show her daughter what Edwardian life was like. Compared to Grandma Moses and admired by Lowry, her bright, teeming pictures and delightful narrative memorably reflect that period.
