1 Key, Alexander The Magic Meadow
Philadelphia The Westminster Press (c.1975) 0-664-32561-0 / 9780664325619 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) John Gretzer 
[lovely copy, tight and unread, missing "Fine" only due to some fading to boards at edges; jacket is also very nice, with just a bit of rubbing/scuffing to the rear panel]. The author here writes, as he did in a number of books, of isolated children with extraordinary mental powers. In this fantasy/science fiction tale, five crippled kids, confined to a hospital ward, are about to be separated because the hospital has been condemned -- then one boy discovers that he has the power to teleport them to the beautiful other world that they had conjured up in their imaginations. Most of this much- loved writer's works are now out of print, were never issued in paperback, and are quite scarce, clean copies being all the more so since the great majority were originally sold to libraries (hence the preponderance of ex- library copies among the handful available for sale). This is an exceptional copy of one of his hardest-to- find books, with no discernible wear beyond the minor blemishes noted above.

2 Key, Alexander The Preposterous Adventures of Swimmer
Philadelphia The Westminster Press (c.1973) 0-664-32537-8 / 9780664325374 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) Andrew Snyder 
[nice tight clean copy, one itty-bitty bump at top edge of rear cover; jacket spine sunned, minor edgewear, a couple of tiny tears at base of spine]. "When an intelligent otter is captured and trained by an egotistical professor to demonstrate mechanical writing on stage, he secretly learns to talk too. Swimmer has an acerbic tongue, a wry sense of humor, a kind heart, and an ingenious mind, all of which help him when he escapes to the woodlands and is pursued by bounty hunters. He assembles an odd collection of friends, and their wild adventures make compelling reading." Like most of this much- loved writer's works, this one has long been out of print.
