Information
Slipcased first edition thus hardback of THE BUTTERFLY BALL AND THE GRASSHOPPER'S FEAST by Alan Aldridge and William Plomer and published by Templar Publishing in 2008. Signed, doodled and inscribed 'with best wishes' to a previous owner by Aldridge on the 'invitation' page. Full numberline for this edition: 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2.

The book is in near fine condition (glossy pictorial boards with gilt lettering to spine) with no significant wear, apart from folding creases to the top page corners of a couple of pages, the most noticeable of them being page 89/90. The book is in a near fine slipcase with embossed design which has no wear to speak of. Internally the pages are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

This is the tale of the summer's day, deep in the woods of England, when the Butterflies and Grasshoppers invited all the creatures of air and land to a Ball and Feast. From St Michael's Mount, Windsor, Rye, Salisbury, Tintern Abbey and the far corners of Britain they came - moles, gnats, dormice, newts, shrews, caterpillars, moths, frogs, squirrels, spiders, toads, mice, bees, flies, worms, centipedes, hares, hedgehogs, otters and foxes. Setting out in Johnson's Spinner Trains, hot-air ballooons, stagecoaches and on foot, most arrive - some fall foul of bats, stoats, wasps and foxes and don't! Beneath the Broad Oak Tree the Butterflies and guests dance the evening away, feasting and merry-making until the glow-worms light up and lead the weary guests back to their beds.
