1/500 copies, inscribed and presented to Henry Fielding Dickens by Walter Dexter with a spiky letter laid in. Inscribed to the half title: 'Sir Henry Fielding Dickens with kindest regard, Walter Dexter.' Dexter's typed letter dates from June 1933 mentions that he is 'sorry you didn't have one earlier: I quite thought one had been sent to you on publication.' He continues in a passive aggressive tone: 'By the way, do you know that neither I nor The Dickensian ever received a copy of your little book of Reminiscences?' Signed in full on 'The Dickensian' headed paper. Very good book, foxing to paper stock.
