The Devil to Pay.

SAYERS, Dorothy L.

London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1939. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title to spine in gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine a little faded, an excellent, bright copy in the mildly toned jacket. First trade edition, first impression. It was preceded by the first acting edition printed for the first production of the play at Canterbury in June 1939. Provenance: from the publisher's archive of Victor Gollancz (1893-1967), one of the revolutionary figures of 20th-century publishing. Everything about Gollancz was distinctive, from his business practices - he flouted convention, backed newcomers extravagantly, and held unique sway over the Book Society choices - to the appearance of his books. The famous yellow jackets, a collaborative design between Gollancz himself and the typographer Stanley Morison, bristle with blurbs, recommendations, and reviews in black and magenta. Prior to its acquisition by Peter Harrington, the archive was shelved together from first publication, though occasionally moved from warehouse to warehouse over the decades. The copies were retained by Gollancz as "archive" or "file" copies and most are stamped in ink with rubber stamps, usually on the front panel of the dust jacket, the front free endpaper, and the title page.

THE DEVIL TO PAY.

SAYERS, Dorothy L. (Dorothy Leigh), 1893-1957 :

Canterbury : H. J. Goulden, 1939. First edition : one of a relatively small number of copies of the "acting" edition produced for the cast and for sale at the original performances of the play at Canterbury Cathedral. Precedes the regular Gollancz edition, which was itself published in an edition of just 2,000 copies. An interesting play, in which Sayers reworks the Faust theme. Crown 8vo (19cm). [iv],(64)pp. Original buff wrappers, printed on upper wrapper in blue; some minimal wear and browning, a handful of spots, but a very good copy of a fragile production. Gilbert A31a.
