First GGBP paperback of THE COMING OF AGE OF THE CHALET SCHOOL - Chalet School No. 39 by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer and published by Girls Gone By Publishers, Somerset in 2008. It was first published in 1958. This complete and unabridged edition 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 Coming of Age of the Chalet School was first published by W. & R. Chambers, Ltd, in 1958 and it is No. 39 in the Chalet School series.

"Any coming-of-age is an important event, and the coming-of-age of the Chalet School is no exception to the rule. The present-day pupils look forward to a term full of thrills and they get them.

Not only do Old Girls (who are, many of them, almost legends by this time), turn up at half term when the great celebration takes place, but the school itself is enlarged by the arrival of some of the former pupils who were left at the branch at Carnbach on the Welsh coast when the main body moved to the Oberland.

News of former pupils pours in on all sides and during the half term the doings planned in commemoration are duly carried out. But there is more. Joey, still the school's moving spirit, despite a family and her many books, escorts the prefects for a weekend at the Tiernsee, where the school began, and they are involved in a thoroughly Jo-like adventure.

The term winds up with the Annual Sale and the Sports, during which a character, much disliked when she was at the school, becomes an object of universal compassion, and some of the girls outdo themselves in wild gymnastics. Finally, the term ends with the Chalet School still going ahead."

288 pages.
