About This Item

The First UK printing published by Jonathan Cape, London in 1962. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just a little bumping at the spine tips and lower front corner. Light spotting and toning to the text-block but the pages remain clean. Free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Near Fine condition. Tiny nick to the upper rear spine fold and very light fading to the spine. The wrapper looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Profusely illustrated throughout by Pat Marriott who also provided the wrapper design. The elusive first title in 'The Wolves' series in very collectible condition. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.


The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is a children's novel by Joan Aiken, first published in 1963. Set in an alternate history of England, it tells of the adventures of cousins Bonnie and Sylvia and their friend Simon the goose-boy as they thwart the evil schemes of their governess Miss Slighcarp. The novel is the first in the "Wolves" Saga, a series of books set during the fictional 19th century reign of King James III.
