About this Item

This is the signed limited edition issued at the same time as the open edition. Boldly signed by the author in blue/black ink on the limitation page with no other dedication it has been numbered No 33 of a limited edition of 175 copies for sale in the United Kingdom and Ireland. There is guilding to the top page edges. A dustwrapper is not called for. This copy has been stored in its original green card slipcase which shows signs of wear with fading to the extremities, a few splits, tears and knocks and there is a pencil number 33 to the spine of the slipcase. This may be one of the best of Priestley's novels, yet it's rather flown under the radar, maybe because it was published at the beginning of the war when everyone (including Priestley) was busy with other matters. That's a pity, because this short but pungent satire on Fleet Street has a spookily contemporary feel. The wonder hero of the title is a regular guy who suddenly finds himself the toast of the media for a brave rescue that he did not, in fact, make - a fact the press won't acknowledge for reasons that, again, are creepily up-to-date. .Ref AAA3.
