More Information
Ivy Compton-Burnett, born 1892 - 1969, was an English writer who specialised on what may be called today the domestic novel. The books are always rich in dialogue rather than background which makes them an intense and demanding read.

The books are collected, early titles are, needless to say, scarce in original dust jackets though not perhaps as expensive as one might think. In all cases the English editions precede the American with several books not seeing an American release. There is only one alternative title which has been duly noted.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
