Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A large print edition of these two classics. Mr. Chipping is a gentle, wonderful English schoolmaster known familiarly to three generations of schoolboys at Brookfield as Mr. Chips. In one of the most irresistible stories ever told, we find Mr. Chips taking a bride, and then, on a sad April Fool's Day, losing her; the little jokes his classes came to expect from a teacher they respected and cherished; the boy whose father sailed on the titanic; and the intrusion of WWI on the peace of Brookfiled. James Hilton wrote Mr. Chips in loving memory of his schoolmaster father, and in tribute to his profession.
