A novel owned by the widow of the publisher James Tait Black and with a letter from the author laid in. The new impression of November 1924 is in bright red cloth, very good, spine a little sunned, spotting to edges and preliminaries. On the front pastedown the bookplate of 'JTB, Underscar, Keswick' - James Tait Black, a partner in the publishers A&C Black who had died a few years earlier. In the letter, presumably to Black's widow who set up the literary prize in her late husband's name, MacCarthy addresses "Dear Madam", discusses her own first novel A Pier and a Band and offers to help to obtain a copy. An attractive volume with interesting associations.
