Barne, Kitty. Rosina and Son. London: Evans Brothers 1959 (1st pub. 1956). 216p, several ills. by Marcia Lane Foster. Good hardcover in good color clipped jacket (creased, soiled). Front endpaper removed. Owner's neat ink stamp on front endpaper and one page margin. ** Rosina Copper was a real polo pony and show champion in 1920s-30s Britain; this children's/young adult novel imagines her life and her colt's in a circus during the ten missing years in her history. "There is nothing true in Rosina and Son except Rosina herself." The jacket is especially lovely. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
