About this Item

First UK edition, first impression. A fine book in a near fine jacket with light edgewear, a little bit of rubbing and one small chip on the rear flap fold. Laid into this book is an interesting little group of papers: 1) a typed letter, signed, from Anne Ford on Houghton Mifflin letterhead paper, date November 9, 1959 accompanying the mailing of this book to Mrs. Katherine G. Jackson, Book Editor at Harper's. The letter discusses the contents of the book, and mentions that Houghton plans to publish the US edition of the book on Jan. 27 of the next year, and that she (Ford) would send an advance copy of that edition to her (Jackson) in mid-December. So, this is unusual - sort of like sending a review copy (although of another edition) in advance of one's own review copy! Also included is a typed sheet with, presumably, the advance writing which would appear on the jacket of the first US edition. This is material about the book and the author, who, it appears, was diagnosed with cancer in Hong Kong in 1954. There is also a mimeographed (?) document on very fragile, brittle paper called "Jean Boley Writes About Herself" and is from the Publicity Department at Houghton Mifflin. At the very end is the typed sentence "Jean Boley died October 6, 1957". Last is a brittle sheet (which has separated in the middle) with English reviews of A Little More Time. This page is from Anne Ford and is dated 1-21-60. The reviews (all positive) are from the pens of some heavy hitters at the time: Kenneth Allsop, J.B. Priestly, Elizabeth Jane Howard, and Christine Brooke-Rose. Obviously, this book was published posthumously. Bookseller Inventory # 568
