The Camberwell Miracle.
London: William Heinemann,, 1933. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket. Spine rolled, darkened and worn at foot, small smudges to front board, foxing to edges of text block. A very good copy in a first issue jacket from another copy with a few short closed-tears which are tape-repaired on the verso. First edition, first impression. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author below the printed dedication "and I may very well add, in gratitude for all the trouble he took to prevent me from making too great a fool of myself in the writing of this book, from his old pal, J. D. Beresford. 19a, Eaton Place, Brighton, 6th November. 1933." Beresford's inscription reflects one facet of his character mentioned by ODNB: "He was intensely self-conscious, a quality he believed hampered his writing". H. H. Bashford (1880-1961) was Honorary Physician to George VI and best known as a writer of satirical novels, particularly Augustus Carp, Esq., By Himself: Being the Autobiography of a Really Good Man (1924), described by Anthony Burgess as "one of the great comic novels of the twentieth century".
