Stella Gibbons - Cold Comfort Farm - 1932 UK 2nd HB Signed / inscribed
Stella Gibbons - Cold Comfort Farm - 1932 U.K. reprint published by Longmans, Green and Co New impression, published in October 1932, one month after the first edition. Inscribed to the front endpaper: "For Miss Ellen O'Malley from Allan Webb and Stella Gibbons September 11 1933.". Allan Webb was Stella Gibbon's husband and 1933 was the year that they were married, the first half of the inscription, including the "and" is in Allan's hand and then Gibbons has added her name and the date. The identity of Miss Ellen O'Malley is not clear, but the Irish actress of that name who died in 1961 is a possible candidate given Webb's acting background. The book is firmly bound, having been re-backed with a new black cloth spine lettered in gilt, the original boards have been retained but were evidently worn and an attempt has been made to colour them to match the new spine. The text block is slightly foxed and toned with some minor marks.
