This is an auction for SEAL MORNING by Rowena Farre.

From Wikipedia:

"Rowena Farre (1921 – 1979) was a British writer who achieved fame for her first book SEAL MORNING, published in 1957. Seal Morning describes how, at the age of ten, the writer and her aunt Miriam settled in a remote croft in Sutherland, Scotland, where they lived for seven years with various pets that included a common seal, Lora. The book has been reprinted a number of times and translated into seven languages. SEAL MORNING was made into a UK television series in 1986. According to the publisher’s blurb, Rowena Farre’s early childhood was spent in India, the country she looked on as a second home. Because her parents thought it better for her health, she was sent to Britain and left in charge with an aunt - the Aunt Miriam of the book. They lived in Buckinghamshire and Kent before going to Sutherland, and except for a brief period in a kindergarten, her education was undertaken by her aunt. When her aunt married and moved abroad, the author trained as a typist and took a job in an office but tried to find work outdoors during the summer months. She had travelled extensively in Britain and had lived among tinkers and gypsies. Although the book became a best seller, questions were raised concerning the authenticity of parts of the narrative. The Northern Times made extensive enquiries but was unable to locate the croft in which she claimed to have lived. Other journalists were also unable to substantiate the claim. Seal Morning was republished by Edinburgh’s Mercat Press in 2001. The book is now considered an autobiographical novel rather than a strict autobiography..."
