Product description

As You Were – 1st edition

Reminiscences by Douglas Byng

Gerald Duckworth & Company Limited, London, 1970: 1st edition.

Hardback; 145 x 220 mm; blue boards with titles in gold on spine; 176 pages; illustrated. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. The dust jacket is grubby with wear to the edges and a closed tear. Inside the jacket there is a small area of staining at the bottom of the front cover. This is almost imperceptibly visible along the edge of the front cover of the book. There is staining to the bottom page ends, and very slightly to the fore edge page ends which are slightly tanned. There is tanning of the inside of the jacket. The staining of the bottom page ends also slightly affects the front and back matter.

Douglas Byng (1893–1987) was an English comic singer and songwriter in West End theatre, revue and cabaret. Billed as "Bawdy but British", Byng was famous for his female impersonations. His songs are full of sexual innuendo and double entendres. An openly gay performer, Byng was noted for his camp performances in the music halls and in cabaret. Byng made a large number of recordings, many of which have been transferred to CD. Byng was also a noted pantomime dame and appeared in over 30 pantomimes.
