First edition, first impression. With the author’s signed presentation inscription to Storer Lunt, head of the New York publishing house W. W. Norton & Co., on the front free endpaper, “To Storer Lunt, Colleague of my best friend among american publishers, the late W. W. Norton, from Stanley Unwin, 31st March 1960”. Includes, clipped from the New York Times, the glowing review that Lunt wrote of the book, and three typed letters signed, two from Stanley Unwin thanking him for the review, and one from “Jack” at A & C Black reporting Unwin’s delight at reading Lunt’s review – “I have never known the old boy so delighted and above himself (which is saying something).” A nice document of relations in the upper echelons of the publishing world.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, blue topstain. Black and white portrait frontispiece and numerous photographic plates. Some light rubbing to extremities, but an excellent copy.
