LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
The Bodley Head, London - first UK edition, 1969. hardcover, 8" x 5 1/4", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps & stickers, and barcode excised from ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Dark-green cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine. This volume contains all the essays Mr Greene wished to preserve in book form. Many of them were included in 'The Lost Childhood', published in 1951; some of these have been rewritten and expanded. Over a third of them are assembled together for the first time. The new pieces deal with such diverse subjects as Kim Philby, West African explorers, Fidel Castro, Pope Pius XII, Rider Haggard and the Recusant poets. All of them are marked by the qualities of a great novelist: originality and exceptional powers of sympathy.
