n.d.[1951-1953]. Manuscript. Hardback. Two volumes, both bound in quarter leather. The Break-Up comes with a letter from Nick Bentley who had evidently read the work. Both typescripts have been heavily annotated throughout. The Break-Up is a short-ish story, the Bespoke Overcoat is a play. The Bespoke Overcoat was first performed in 1953 and directed by Alec Clunes (father of Martin). Flyers from the theatre production have been bound in to the rear. Two excellent pieces from an important writer. Some foxing. [8552, Hyraxia Books].
