Notes

First edition, first impression. A superb presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his wife, "To my darling wife Geehos, 1933. Wyndham Lewis." Gladys Anne Hoskins (1900-1979) and Lewis were married in 1930, though he concealed this fact from his friends for much of the 1930s. In 1939 Lewis wrote to the wife of his friend John Rothenstein, explaining that: "my wife and I were most orthodoxly spliced a long time agoI have found myself rather overshadowed by herand she has been forced a little into the fray - we have no children. She is blonde, she tends to put on fat, her mother was German, her father a good British farmershe has ridden all over the Atlas on a mule and is a great reader of my books; but you can see she is a wife in a thousand." One of 1,000 copies printed.
