First published in 1939 and long out of print, W. Somerset Maugham's PRINCESS SEPTEMBER AND THE NIGHTINGALE is now reissued with original text and illustrations. The story is a classic fairytale of Siam (now Thailand). The ninth daughter of the king is the object of envy by her sisters, who try to kill her lucky nightingale. But the bird's life is saved, and all is well. Color illustrations.
