Marcia Falkender to Mary Wilson
Edna O'Brien - A Scandalous Woman - inscribed by Marcia Falkender to Mary Wilson
Edna O'Brien - A Scandalous Woman - 1974 U.K. first edition published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson An association copy with compelling provenance, inscribed by Marcia Falkender, Prime Minister, Harold Wilson's influential Private and Political Secretary, to his wife, Mary: "To Mary love from Marcia Christmas 1974", from the collection of Harold and Mary Wilson. The book is firmly bound in blue cloth lettered in green and gilt to the spine, the extremities are slightly bumped and rubbed. The text block is a little toned and dusty. The dust jacket is price clipped, it is slightly toned, with minor rubbing and a few short closed tears to the edges. Rumours persisted that Harold Wilson and Marcia Falkender were having an affair, although Mary and Marcia remained close friends. It's tempting to think, given its title, that this book, presented to Mary in the year that Harold Wilson began his second term as Prime Minister, represented something of an in-joke between the two women. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
