The Last of the Wine.
London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1956 - Octavo. Original brown boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Light foxing to edges, an excellent copy in the jacket with faded spine, light rubbing to extremities. Frontispiece double-page map. First edition, first impression. This is the second of Renault's historical novels to deal with male homosexuality as its key theme. "Her interest in sexuality and specifically in homosexuality and fluid gender roles and identities may also have contributed to her marginalization — yet these very interests warrant a re-evaluation of her achievement in an era more liberal than the one in which she began to write" (ODNB). A nice association copy, with the gift inscription of First World War poet Cecil Roberts on the front free endpaper, "To Alec Lacy, from his friend Cecil Roberts - Since you love Greece. June 1959". [Attributes: First Edition]
