Original brown cloth, lettered in dark brown. Spine ends rubbed, a few light marks, bookplate of Ivor Novello on front pastedown, good. Novello was an actor (the lead in Hitchcock's The Lodger), playwright, composer (Keep the Home Fires Burning, We'll Gather Lilacs in the Spring Again, and various musical shows including Gay's the Word, Glamorous Nights, King's Rhapsody etc) and all-round superstar of the first decades of the twentieth century. And, according to my family tradition, he once kissed my grandmother (only on the cheek, of course).
