Andrew Gow's own - temporary - copy of his memoir of his friend A E Housman, presented by Cambridge University Press to the author, transferred to the Housman collection of John Carter who ultimately returned it either to Gow or possibly to R J L Kingsford at the CUP. Laid in is Kingsford's inscribed compliments slip which he has annotated to Arthur Gow: 'Gow Temporarily out of bound stock! My copy herewith to go on with. R.J.L.K.' Underneath this inscription, the bibliophile and collector of Housman, John Carter, has subsequently written: 'Thanks Tother has now come'. Kingsford's initials also appear on the first blank. It's not known how the book was transferred between the two men. A near fine copy with just a little fading to the spine - and a truly fascinating provenance.
