First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to Elisabeth Bergner, “E.B. from W.B. 1932.” Bergner is the actress who supposedly inspired the character of Margo Channing in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s classic film, All About Eve. From the library of Anthony Hobson, with his bookplate to the front pastedown; Hobson (1921-2014) was the director of Sotheby’s and noted bibliophile.

Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine ends a little rubbed, faint sporadic foxing to contents. An excellent copy.
