First Edition, First Printing. With the author’s signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, “To Cousin Dorothy, who asked me what I had done to deserve Elena – see page 168 from Edmund July 25, 1955”. Dorothy Mendenhall was Wilson’s cousin, a respected researcher, obstetrician, and pioneer in methods of childbirth.

Octavo. Original green boards, titles to upper board and spine in yellow. With the dust jacket. Boards discoloured as usual but a very good copy in the frayed and very lightly chipped dust jacket with a little fading at the spine.
