The REAL DIARY OF A REAL BOY

Tudor, Tasha. Peterborough, NH: Richard R. Smith, Co., Inc., 1967. First edition. 3rd state. 7 5/8" x 5 1/4"

194 pp. Spine: RRS. Dust jacket back has 7 endorsements, Sim's Press citation, and a red headline. The book is inscribed to long-time friend Donn Purvis, Carter Hill Road, Concord, NH. Tudor added on page [iv] a pencil drawing of a boy lettering a bulletin board which says: "To Don [sic] with best wishes Tasha Tudor". We have seen one other variation of the same drawing done in ink in Patrick Bauhan's copy of the book. Bauhan was the son of the publisher. These copies are the only two we know of in which Tudor added such a special interpretation of her esteem. The dust jacket shows some light wear. The Purvis house in Concord, NH, is the one Tudor copied for her own final home in Marlboro, Vt. This copy was listed, but did not sell, in a Quinn/Waverly Auction in the fall of 2007.
