The painter and illustrator, Susan Beatrice Pearse, was best known for the ‘Ameliaranne’ series of children’s books, and brought a great consistency of charm to the 20 volumes by eight different authors, as indeed she did to all her work.
Published by George G Harrap between 1920 and 1950, the 20 picture books were produced in collaboration with eight different women authors, including Eleanor Farjeon, Margaret Gilmour, Constance Heward and Natalie Joan.
This lovely 1946 first edition, Ameliaranne Bridesmaid, is written by Ethelberta Morris, and follows our well-known heroine, the eldest daughter of an impoverished washerwoman, become a bridesmaid for the first time.
