About This Item

New York: Farrar , Straus and Giroux, 1965. Boards. Very Good +/Very Good +. A very handsome copy of the 1965 stated 12th printing. Tight and VG+ (very light traces of offsetting along the edges) in a bright, price-intact ($3.25), VG+ dustjacket, with the gold seal (the Newbery Medal) usually pasted onto the front cover in this case very cleanly and subtly removed, showing almost no trace that it was once affixed to the jacket. Light offsetting along the flap-folds (especially the rear panel and flap-fold), otherwise clean as could be. Octavo, a superb copy of this early edition of the 1962 Newbery Award winner.

Synopsis

A Wrinkle in Time is a science fantasy novel by Madeleine L'Engle, first published in 1962. The book won a Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and was runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. It is the first in L'Engle's series of books about the Murry and O'Keefe families.

Great read for a kid, adult, or anyone who hasn't lost their sense of mystery and adventure. What if? What if time travel were as easy as L'Engle proposes? I still look for Mrs. Whatsit to point me in the right direction.
