Banned By the Censor: The Eclectic Library

by Middleton, Edgar


London: T Werner Laurie, 1929. "THIS BOOK is the result of a disagreement between the author and the Censor with regard to a revue 'Morning, Noon and Night,' which was produced at the Everyman Theatre, Hampstead, in May 1929. When, as is customary, the book of the revue was submitted to the Lord Chamberlain, it was returned with an official note to the effect that the latter found himself unable to license the sketches 'Mussolini's Lunch', Returned With Thanks' or 'Force of Habit'...Middleton felt flattered, and as the Censor wouldn't permit his sketches on the stage he decided to publish." CONTENTS: Mussolini's Lunch; Force of Habit; Returned with Thanks; The Peace Offering; The Big Moment; The Ring; The Night Out; The Man Who Know Women; Cause and Effect; Habit. 126pp. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.
