Second GGBP edition paperback of THE CHALET SCHOOL IN EXILE (No. 14 in the series) by Elinor Mary Brent-Dyer and published by Girls Gone By Publishers, Somerset in 2009. Complete and unabridged Commemorative edition. It was first published in hardback in 1940. This title is now Out of Print.

The book is in near fine condition (clean illustrated covers and black lettering on the front and spine) with only minor shelf wear. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no inscriptions.

The Chalet School is a series of approximately sixty school story novels by Elinor Brent-Dyer, initially published between 1925 and 1970.

The school was initially located in Austria, moved to Guernsey in 1939, following the rise to power of the Nazi Party, then to "Plas Howell", a house on the border of England and Wales, then to St Briavels, close to the English - Welsh border and finally to Switzerland.

Chalet School books were originally published in hardback between 1925 and 1970. The novels were reissued in paperback format between 1967 and 1995. Usually with updated language. Some were more or less uncut, but many others were abridged to various extents, including chapters deleted from some titles. A few were split into two paperback volumes, and several were retitled.

Several authors have written books about the Chalet School. Some of them follow on from the last book of the series, and others attempt to fill in some of the "gaps" in the earlier years of the school. All books are published by Girls Gone By Publishers (formerly Friends of the Chalet School).

The Chalet School in Exile was without doubt Elinor’s strongest Chalet School title, and indeed it was this title which enabled the series to continue. Chambers had thought that there should be no more titles after Jo Returns to the Chalet School, and although they did allow publication of The New Chalet School, without the Anschluss and all that Elinor made of it, the series would have finished.

The original GGBP edition did not have extra introductory material, but with this new edition includes a short story from Carol Allan, author of Gillian of the Chalet School, entitled A Fateful Day at the Sonnalpe, which won a competition in the Friends of the Chalet School magazine some years ago, and which fills in one of the gaps in Exile. Ruth Jolly has written a very helpful guideline to events leading up to the Anschluss, and this is illustrated with maps by Peter Jolly.

GGBP published The Chalet School in Exile in April 2003 and reprinted it in August 2009. The book version is out of print.

"The Chalet School, set up twelve years ago in the peace and beauty of the Austrian Tirol, finds itself at loggerheads with the Nazi invaders of Austria. The School is forced into flight, but not into defeat. Surprise after surprise greets the reader in this most thrilling of all Elinor Brent-Dyer's stories.

This edition of The Chalet School in Exile has been published to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the World War II, and in memory of all those who lost their lives."

298 pages.
