McKINLEY, Robin. Spindle's End. NY: Putnam's Sons, [2000]. 8vo, [vii] 422pp. Green half-cloth spine stamped in silver with grey boards. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.

FIRST EDITION. The evil fairy Pernicia has set a curse on Princess Briar-Rose: she is fated to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into an endless, poisoned sleep. Katriona, a young fairy, kidnaps the princess in order to save her; she and her aunt raise the child in their small village, where no one knows her true identity. But Pernicia is looking for her, intent on revenge for a defeat four hundred years old. Robin McKinley's masterful version of Sleeping Beauty is, like all of her work, a remarkable literary feat, and this is a particularly fine, first edition copy.
