pp 124 First edition inscribed to the writer and journalist John Brophy on the first blank: 'John Brophy from Lascelles Abercrombie 1932'. Accompanying the book is a letter from Abercrombie thanking Brophy for his recently published comments and as 'an acknowledgement of your generosity' sends 'the enclosed... I rather suspect you may not have seen it, as not very many people have. It got hardly any notice' (Brophy was at the time a senior book reviewer with the Daily Telegraph.) Abercrombie describes is as his 'magnum opus (not so very magnum tho').' The book is very good; the jacket good with a large closed tear to the lower panel. It is interesting to observe such concern about the reception of his work even from so successful an author as the former Dymock poet, Lascelles Abercrombie, at this stage of his career. Abercrombie's papers are held by the Brotherton library, University of Leeds.
