The Editors:
Amabel Williams-Ellis was an English writer, critic, and early member of the Bloomsbury Group. Over the course of her life, Amabel Williams-Ellis wrote more than 40 books. These included novels, books for children, and histories. She wrote regularly for periodicals, and edited multiple volumes of folk legends, fairy tales, and science fiction. She was significantly inspired by the writer and explorer Mary Kingsley, who she had met in childhood, and who she described as 'an anthropologist before anthropology'. The Times described Amabel Williams-Ellis as someone who 'wrote books to find things out, and seemed prepared to take on anything.'

I ordered this book for a birthday present but wasn’t going to be home for the initial delivery date. I contacted Marianne, who kindly offered to hold off on posting the book until I was home. When the book arrived it was also lovingly wrapped which was an unexpected surprise and much appreciated. Not only a vintage book to enjoy but a lovely experience as well. Thanks again.
