First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from Ronald Searle, inscribed in his distinctive hand on the recto of the frontispiece: “For Wendy, who has been through it all with us. Kaye and Ronald, Christmas 1959”; and with a thumbnail portrait of a St Trinian’s girl. “Wendy” is the actress, dancer, and theatre and film director, Wendy Toye (1917-2010) who had collaborated with Searle on a number of theatre projects. A particularly appealing presentation copy.

Quarto. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout. Jacket with a few nicks and chips at extremities of spine. An excellent copy.
