(Mary) Garland Bullivant

British author. Known as both G\rland Bullivant and Mary Garland Bullivant. As far as I know she only wrote two books which were both pony stories set in the West Country. Both have lovely illustrations, although the stories are fairly unremarkable. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find out any more about the author.

Collectors Info:
These were reprinted a number of times and also both published in the USA. They are therefore fairly easy to find both in the UK and America, though copies with dust-jackets are a bit more elusive.
