First edition, first printing. Inscribed (on Valentine’s Day) by the author to his friend and collaborator Ronald Searle on the front free endpaper, “For Monica and Ronald, this obstreporous [sic] vaudeville with love from its author, Sid. 14 February, 1968”. Includes, loosely inserted, an envelope dated Feb 12 1986 to Searle from Perelman containing an autograph letter giving directions to the appropriate bus stop to reach him in his country residence in Frenchtown, New Jersey, and a bus schedule. A charming artefact of a close friendship.

Octavo. Original red boards, titles to spine and upper board in black, top edge stained green. With the dust jacket. Tiny nicks to extremities. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with a few small chips.
