  2. The Rock Pool.

    The Rock Pool.

    First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by Connelly on the front free endpaper to Anne Bakewell Rogers: "Annie, with all love from Cyril. This is the very rare US edition which I believe only sold 350 copies - I remember I wouldn't have my photograph on the jacket and they were very cross. They seem to have used the same type and misprints as the Paris edition - but nice endpapers. Learn More

  3. Enemies of Promise.

    Enemies of Promise.

    First edition, first impression, uncommon in the dust jacket. Connolly made a surer reputation than with his debut novel The Rock Pool (1936) with Enemies of Promise (1938). This work is part literary criticism, part general observations on the life of the writer, part childhood autobiography, part astute assessment of the precocity forced on English children by public schools.
