The Blue Fox, Duncan, Ronald
31 The Blue Fox
Duncan, Ronald
New York Oxford Press 1952 Stated First American Edition Hardcover Very Good+ very good Jacket Michael Hansom, Illustrator 
Very clean blue cloth boards with gold lettering on spine. Hint of light surface wear to bottom spine corners, no fraying. Binding is tight & square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean and bright. Clean bright illustrated endpapers. Small previous owner name and date neatly penned at top corner of half-title page; no other marks. 202 pgs. Foreword by Brian Vesey Fitzgerald. Illustrated by Michael Hansom. Clean dustjacket has shallow chipping at top and bottom spine edge, a few short closed edge tears, clear tape at top and bottom spine edge. Ronald Duncan, a farmer "down to earth and mud on his boots" blends a laconic wit with the sensibilities of a poet. He is equally skillful at demolishing in a word the pomposities of a bureaucratic rat killer, and at building up in the next moment the feel of an English meadow after a rainstorm. A wise and happy man, whatever his mood he manages to infect us with his delight in the world. The scene is Devonshire, and the Blue Fox pub the particular symbol of village life from which Duncan derives his inspiration. 017630
