Product description

First edition 1958. Signed by the author Graham Greene. On the first free endpaper there is a signed dedication which reads: "Dear Gwen, Already this version has been changed. But thank you so much for all you have done for my play. Love Graham." 
This is dedicated to the actress Dame Gwen Frangcon-Davies who starred as Mrs Callifer in the play in 1958 at the Globe Theatre in London, alongside Sir John Gielgud. Blue cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the spine. The spine is sunned and faded as is the adjoining 2cm of the back board. The front board is faded to a lesser extent and has a few tiny paler spots, mostly near the centre of the left hand edge.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
