About this Item

Cloth. 245 copies printed by Mallette Dean. Frontispiece. Page edges are uncut. From page 3: "This book is a tribute to Conyers Read. The articles in it are from old friends and colleagues. The book itself, the format and printing, comes from a clos e friend who wishes to remain anonymous, who feels, and many will agree with him, that a beautifully printed book is a most fitting tribute to one who wrote, used and loved books all his life". Born in 1881, Conyers Read was a history instructor, ra n the family textile business from 1920-33, became a Professor of English History, was appointed Chief of the British Empire Section of the Office of Strategic Services in Washington, D.
