About This Item

J. B. Lippincott, NY, 1955. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. "In 'Parnassus on Wheels', 39-year-old Helen McGill is weary of keeping house for her bachelor brother. When red-bearded bookseller Roger Mifflin rolls into town, she impulsively purchases his mobile bookshop. Roger promises to teach Helen the trade and together they hit the road for a series of winsome adventures throughout New England. Their story was praised by Boston's Evening Transcript as 'graceful in style' [and] entertaining in every aspect." [Pub. Info] Illustrations by Douglas Gorsline. NEW EDITION

Synopsis

Although my name appears on the title page, the real author of this book is Miss Helen McGill (now Mrs. Roger Mifflin), who told me the story with her own inimitable vivacity. And on her behalf I want to send to you these few words of acknowledgment.
