Letters from a Lost Uncle (from polar regions)
Eyre & Spottiswoode 1948 - 174 x 113mm, pale yellow pictorial cloth lettered in red on spine, lettered & blocked in red with drawing of the uncle by Peake on upper cover, pp.[ii] [130]. Illustrated throughout with line drawings in soft pencil interspersed with typewritten text and passages in the author's hand. Tail corner of one leaf defective (not affecting text or illustrations), neatly repaired chip at head of unclipped dustwrapper, which in common with all copies of this edition, has the original price overprinted. The author was dissatisfied with the quality of reproduction; his marvellous drawings are afflicted with a quite inappropriate fogginess, while many of the typewritten areas are too dark. The book was withdrawn from sale at his request shortly after publication. Peake made a new set of drawings for a television adaptation in 1955. I specialise in Mervyn Peake. Enquiries welcome. [Attributes: First Edition]
