The recipient was fellow author and close friend, Laurie Lee.The book is reasonably firmly bound in grubby, bumped and marked yellow cloth lettered in black to the spine, which is sunned. The text block is age toned, slightly foxed and marked with minor cracking at points and a more serious split at the title page through which the webbing can be seen.
A pleasing association copy, representing one of Lehmann's happier and more enduring literary friendships, with the inscription dating from the earliest period of their relationship.
