NY: Morrow, 1984. Signed & Inscribed First Edition, First State copy, a presentation copy, by the internationally famed director to noted Polish writer/director Jerzy Skolimowski, writer of Polanski's breakthrough film, KNIFE IN THE WATER. Much better than very good copy, slightly foxed to topedge leaves, in like dust jacket showing light wear and a modicum of stain to spine & back panel, not affecting the author portrait. This copy is a rarity indeed: it bears a full-page inscription by Polanski in Polish to Skolimowski (translation provided by him on a laid-in sheet). In blue ink: "Romek. So you see what is happening / I am signing my biography to you / And it is in English / You could not have foreseen this / during those hot evenings / on Narutowicra Street / when you were served / fruit juices by Kuba / Love/ R." Signature a rarity today, highly sought after; an inscription by him, particularly one with this degree of meaning & history, in such an association on a presentation copy, is an extraordinary uniquity.
