First edition, first impression. Loosely inserted original poem titled St Christopher (1939). The play is the “third of his seasonal plays…although set in an Austrian country house in 1848–9, was clearly a contemporary metaphor for the need to overcome the cyclical nature of war.” (ODNB).

Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Loosely inserted autograph poem by the author. Spine slightly faded, contents lightly toned, edges foxed, in the jacket that has a slightly darkened spine, spotted panels, a slight stain to fold of front flap. A very good copy.
