Notes

Signed limited edition of 100 copies, this copy number 59. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To J. B. Morton, from Maurice Baring, New Year 1935" on the front free endpaper. Morton is best remembered under his pseudonym, "Beachcomber", which he used throughout his career as a satirical columnist at the Express; both he and Baring belonged to the circle of Catholic writers that flourished between the wars. Baring's historical novel, told from the perspective of a Tudor courtier, was originally published by William Heinemann in 1930.
