Notes

First US edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his parents on the front free endpaper, "To my dear father and mother, with love from Victor. April 15th '54". Published the same year as the London edition, Pritchett's study on Spain, which has elicited comparisons with Orwell's Homage to Catalonia, was based on the four years he lived there in the 1920s.
