Elaborately inscribed by the author to friends on the first free endpaper: 'And heartily inscribed for J & L.'s Desmond by their aging but always Faithful & Admiring Adherent John Cowper Powys Corwen Edeyrnion North Wales 1944'. Powys's inscription was written as a response to a gift inscription written the previous year at the head of the page: 'In happy remembrance of September, 1943. Lucy E Horstmann.' Bath bookseller's ticket opposite. A very good copy of the first edition of Powys's autobiography bound in publisher's brown cloth. J B Priestley wrote of this work that 'Even if Powys had never written any novels – and at least one of them, A Glastonbury Romance is a masterpiece – this one book alone would have proved him to be a writer of genius.'
