Publisher: Penguin, Scoresby, Victoria, Austrlaia

Published:   1989

Binding:   Softcover  179  pages

Condition: Like New  &  UNread condition! a display copy


UNread - it was the display copy. It is Tight -  neat, no inscriptions or marks. Appears as in my photos - this is the exact copy!!  A nicely  preserved copy - superb! VERY  HARD-TO-FIND !!

No discernible shelf wear to glossy penguin covers, the interior is tight and spotlessly clean with 179  pages showling just the slightest of age-toning.

In original softcover binding, glossy pictorial softcover.


The autobiography of a Dutch woman who arrived in Australia aged four from Holland.
