Author: Graham Greene
Publisher: London, The Bodley Head, 1967
First edition. A typed letter to Mr. Svanström from Greene’s secretary Josephine Reid laid in, with the message: ” Mr. Greene has asked me to tell you how sorry he is that he cannot sign this book as he is abroad.” Ragnar Svanström (1904-1988), Swedish historian and literary director, was the long-time contact of Greene at Norstedts Publishing House in Stockholm. He edited the ‘Introduction to Three Novels’, published by Norstedts in 1962. The friendship that developed between Greene and Svanström, and his wife Greta spanned many decades. Their correspondence is kept at the Royal Library in Stockholm.
8vo., original cloth with dust wrapper. Wrapper with the usual slight fading to spine, otherwise a very good copy.
