More Information
Elinor Brent Dyer, originally named Gladys Eleanor May Dyer, was one of the top 3 schoolgirl fiction writers of the period. She trained as a teacher and taught privately before opening her own school in Hereford England. She was born on 6th April 1894 and has an unsettled childhood with her father leaving home when she was 3, a theme she touched on throughout her books. Elinor Brent Dyer is best known for the Chalet School series which is also the main focus for most collectors. There is a wealth of other books, material and collectable ephemera though. Pre war titles in jacket are, of course, the must sought after and nice copies in jacket a genuinely rare  books. Even later titles are no longer easy to find in collectible condition.
