About this Item

First UK edition, first impression. A very good book with some fading to the green cloth of the spine (but not to the gold stamping, which is still bright), pretty clean internally (no foxing or offsetting) in a very good minus dustjacket with some closed tears at the folds with tape 'repair' on the verso. The spine is tanned and there is some scattered foxing on the panels. The nice thing about this copy is the typed letter from the author which is laid into the book. The letterhead is "Hill House.Taplow./ Buckinghamshire" , dated June 28, 1933 and is presumably to H.G. Wells. The letter reads: "Dear Wells, Many thanks for your letter, and for so kindly sending me the cutting from the New York Times. By an odd chance a similar cutting came from a friend by the same post. / I hope very much you found Robert Frost well and happy. Do, when writing to him again, give him all my remembrances." Added to this in black pen - all but undecipherable - "sent with all kindness from your friend W.J. de la Mare". I think this is what it says, but I leave it to the handwriting experts to confirm (or not). At any rate, a nice literary connection: de la Mare, Wells and Frost. It is possible that this book may have belonged at one time to H.G. Wells. Bookseller Inventory # P125
