The Eldest Son: A Domestic Drama in Three Acts.
First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to Owen Rutter, the English historian, novelist and travel writer (“For Owen Rutter, inscribed with good wishes, by John Galsworthy. July 1 1931.”) The play was first written in 1909, but “accidents happy and unhappy have prevented its performance earlier than November 1912” (author’s note).
