About This Item

Eyre & Spottiswoode, London, 1932. First Edition (first printing) - the dedication copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To my darling Mary with all my heart from John". 4to. 84pp. Blue cloth lettered in red at the spine. Some light fox-spotting to half a dozen preliminary and concluding leaves and evidence of a little damp soiling to the rear board. A bright if slightly dusty copy in tanned and spotted dust wrapper, chipped at the spine ends with a little loss and with some minor corresponding signs of damp to the rear panel. A selection of twenty-two satirical poems ('Straight-Bat Barrington', 'The Debasing Influence of a Good Child', 'Gratuitous Advice to a Lady Who is Kind to Cats', etc.), with a printed dedication 'To My Wife'. Morton met and married Mary O'Leary, an Irish doctor, in 1927. They lived happily together until Mary's death in 1974, a fact Morton never fully adjusted to, believing in his confusion that she was still alive and even insisting on addressing all of the ladies in his eventual nursing home as 'Mary'.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good/Good.
