Absolutely fine first edition, signed and presented by the author and bibliophile Cyril Connolly - with a letter laid in - to the London bookseller Bertram Rota. Connolly has signed the book below his printed name (crossed through) on the title page. In the autograph letter (stamped with date of receipt, 28 August 1969) Connolly, using Sunday Times headed paper, states 'Dear Mr Rota, I hope & believe this is one you havent got - it needs a touch of ink eraser - Gratefully, yrs Cyril Connolly'. At the foot of the page, in Rota's hand, 'About exchanging issues of Personal Landscape [Lawrence Durrell's magazine]' The book is near fine in a near fine jacket, apparently unread and an excellent copy.
