Frontispiece of Elizabeth Goudge book, The White Witch, signed for Rosemary Sutcliff

From Rosemary Sutcliff’s library, a signed front page in Elizabeth Goudge‘s famous historical novel The White Witch, set in the times of King Charles 1st. Elizabeth Goudge was awarded the Carnegie Medal in 1947 for The Little White Horse; Rosemary Sutcliff was awarded it in 1957 for her novel The Lantern Bearers.

  1. I’ve often thought that Rosemary must have read “Towers in the Mist” (possibly the reason I applied to Oxford!) because of a few small things in “The Armourer’s House”; and Hugh’s love for Oxford in “Brother Dusty-Feet.”
