About This Item

London: John Lehmann, 1948. Hardcover. Near Fine. pp 121 Thomas Nashe's novel of 1594 first published in this edition in 1948 with the artist Michael Ayrton's dedicatory drawing on the first free endpaper and inscribed 'Magda from Michael'. Near fine in fresh blue cloth, browning to end papers, pages crisp; in a very good price-clipped jacket, lightly soiled and nicked to the edges and tanned spine. Magda Paton-Freeman worked for the BBC, reputedly replying to Lord Haw Haw's infamous broadcasts, and thereby earning herself a place on Goebbels' death list. Ayrton achieved success as a painter, printmaker, sculptor and designer; his considerable output of sculptures, book-illustrations, poems and stories reveals a lifelong obsession with flight, myth and mazes. Near Fine 1948
