Wings Over Europe: A Dramatic Extravaganza on a Pressing Theme
London: Chatto and Windus. 1932. First. First English edition, with a two-page Author's Note that appears here for the first time. Bookplate of Mary Landon Baker on the front pastedown, a stain at the bottom of the rear board and bottom page edge, just touching the text of a few pages, else near fine, lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by Robert Nichols: "To Mary Baker with best wishes from her friend Robert Nichols. Venice Oct. 15, 1937." A Bleiler listed anti-war play, about what happens when the British Prime Minister's 25 year old nephew learns how to control atomic energy. Baker was described by Time magazine at her death in 1960 as the "eccentric alter-ego, tabloid-titillating 'shy bride' of the 1920's, who left millionaire fiance Alister McCormick at the Chicago church three times in 1922, [and who] spurned all the rest of her 65 proposals from an Almanach de Gotha of suitors." .
