1st Edition. Red linen-weave paper over board with title and author embossed on spine and front cover. This copy has the advantage of the original dust jacket with slight wear and the cover art of the Irish cartoonist, war artist and illustrator Rene Bull intact. 'Apple and Percival' relates the adventures of Apple (the redoubtable Crew Apple of Norfolk Broads fame) and his tried companion, Percival, whether ski-ing, caravanning, handling an influx of pig into his cottage garden, or judging village ankle competitions. George Anthony Armstrong Willis (1897-1976), aka "A.A.", was an Anglo-Canadian writer, dramatist, essayist and celebrated contributor to 'Punch'. Armstrong contributed to the screenplay of Hitchcock's Young and Innocent (1937), and several of his own works were adapted into films including 'The Strange Case of Mr Pelham', which was made into the 1970 film 'The Man Who Haunted Himself'. 'Apple and Percival' was adapted for BBC radio in 1976 with Ian Carmichael as narrator.
