Adam of the Road
In this story of thirteenth-century England, Adam travels from St. Albans Abbey to Winchester to Oxford in search of his father, a strolling player. The Newbery Award seal was applied to the dust jacket by the time of the second printing in June 1943. The paper in the first printing is unusually heavy for a war time book, but by the second and third printings, it had noticably decreased in thickness. The green cloth binding of the first printing became blue in subsequent printings.
This book is the Main Edition.
