9780140215656: The Siege (Pelican)

At the age of two, in 1960, Jessy Park was remote, withdrawn, unable to walk or talk, yet oddly content within the invisible walls that surrounded her. Doctors were baffled. The study of autism was still in its infancy. Jessy's family stepped in. This book records the challenges and rewards of the first eight years of Jessy's life.

Book Description PENGUIN BOOKS LTD, 1973. Book Condition: Very Good. 1973. New edition. Paperback. 8vo.Original Penguin edition.Vintage paperback. Allen Lane parted company with The Bodley Head and on the 1st of January 1936 set up his own limited company 'Penguin Books Ltd.' as a private firm with one hundred pounds nominal capital and he and his two brothers (Richard and John) as directors. He resigned as a director of The Bodley Head a few months later. By June 1937 Penguin had published its hundredth book - infact two volumes of its Travel and Adventure series nos. 99 and 100 The Worst Journey in the World. Also by then Penguin were keen to start publishing more educational style books and so the decision was taken to publish PELICAN BOOKS - the title probably coming from the fact that many of the people who wrote to 'Penguin Books Ltd' got the name wrong and called the company 'Pelican Books'. The brand was already in the mind of the public and Penguin did not want a competitor to steal the name. The first of these educational and non-fiction books ['A' series] appeared in May 1937 and was George Bernard Shaw's The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism. . . . .
