The Year of the Pigeons by John Moore

Signed 1st Edition

Hardcover. Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good. 1963. Collins. 1st Edition. Signed and inscribed by author.

Inscription not entirely legible, but this is a presentation copy to Ivor Brown, a British journalist, editor, writer, and critic.

This story takes place in the quiet depths of Gloucestershire. Here are his observations of a single year, for the most part while made out on his mare Zena. Whether reflecting on foxes or foxgloves, a cornfield in noon or poaching by night, here is the essence of English rural life. Anyone who would like to be reminded of it (and instructed and entertained) shall not be disappointed.
