About This Item

Hardcover. Non-Fiction. Memoirs. 310 pp. Secker & Warburg, London (1960). First Edition. First Printing (FPu). Clean, tight copy with no bumped corners and no markings inside or out. Near Fine/ Near Fine. The unique feature of the book, however, is the gift inscription on the front pastedown, all but hidden by the DJ flap. The book's gift inscription is from Graham Greene to his former constitutional law professor (and later dean) Sir David Keir at his alma mater Balliol College, Oxford University. The unique feature of the inscription is that it is written and signed in the looping cursive script of Greene's natural handwriting and legal signature; versus the printed hybrid script and autograph that he had adopted for public consumption at his booksignings. (Greene's upper-case G' s in his public and semi-private booksignings and inscriptions had evolved to more closely resemble lightning bolts or radically elongated, linear letter S's.) In reality, author Graham Greene was a champion of literate free speech, and a watchdog against the cinematic sexual exploitation of children. (Wikipedia): Henry Graham Greene (2 October, 1904 – 3 April, 1991), better known by his pen name Graham Greene, was an English novelist regarded by many as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. Combining literary acclaim with widespread popularity, Greene acquired a reputation early in his lifetime as a major writer, both of serious Catholic novels, and of thrillers (or "entertainments" as he termed them). He was shortlisted, in 1966 and 1967, for the Nobel Prize for Literature. Through 67 years of writings, which included over 25 novels, he explored the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world, often through a Catholic perspective. Greene supplemented his novelist's income with freelance journalism, book and film reviews for The Spectator, and co-editing the magazine Night and Day. Greene's 1937 film review of Wee Willie Winkie, for Night and Day – which said that the nine-year-old star, Shirley Temple, displayed "a dubious coquetry" which appealed to "middle-aged men and clergymen" – provoked Twentieth Century Fox successfully to sue for £3,500 plus costs, which resulted in the magazine folding, and Greene leaving the UK to live in Mexico until after the trial was over. By the 1950s Graham Greene was generally acknowledged as one of the finest writers of his generation.
