Inscribed by the author to Stephen Spender

First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to fellow author Stephen Spender, "For Stephen whose work was one of the main influences on forming the sensibility that produced this book, although it cannot be held responsible for the mis-spellings and misquotations with affection Colin". Colin Wilson's bestselling landmark first book was "on the front page of every English newspaper... On 12 February the Spenders invited Wilson to supper at Loudoun, where he amused his hosts with 'his really insane conceit'. As Natasha Spender recalls, 'success had completely to gone to his head'".
