First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author "To Harold Rubinstein with all good wishes from Graham Greene. Feb 1 1955." Loosely inserted in this copy is the publisher's promotional slip for this title. This is a great association copy.

Harold Rubinstein was Graham Greene's solicitor whose firm of Rubinstein, Nash & Co. specialised in defending publishers and authors, and acted for Greene between 1946 and 1985. Rubinstein notably came to his aid in acting as an intermediary and confidant when, in 1953, the Vatican wrote to the Archbishop of Westminster to recommend that Greene's novel, The Power And The Glory not be allowed to be reprinted or further translated until passages regarding Catholicism were changed.
