Description:
The sole UK printing published by The Fortune Press, London in 1948 (nd). The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition with just a little fading at the lower edges of the boards due to possible water staining. This has not seeped through internally. Light toning to the text-block. The very scarce WRAPPER is complete and is in near Fine condition with a little toning to the spine and some mild age related markings. The wrapper looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been inscribed by the author in his characteristic calligraphic writing to the front blank end-paper : 'To Frank Pettigel, in memory of his exquisite characterisation of O.F.O.W. Wilde at the Boltons Theatre Club in 1948, from Beresford Egan'. 'O.F.O.W. Wilde' refers to Oscar (Fingal O'Flahertie Wills) Wilde's full name. The 'Bolton's Theatre Club' in London opened in 1947 and by operating as a club where membership was obligatory, was able to stage plays which might otherwise be prohibited under the Theatres Act 1843.… Read more
