A GULL ON THE ROOF. Sketches by Jean Tangye.
London.Michael Joseph. 1961. Hardback. 190pp. Original blue cloth, gilt. Original pictorial dust-wrapper. Octavo. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front fly leaf: 'Best wishes from the Author Derek Tangye Minack & Lamorna L. (indecipherable) 1961.' Loosely laid in are two obituaries cut from newspapers ( one by John Le Carré]. Slight browning of fore-edges; slight browning on the half-title from where the newspaper clipping have lain; else the book is clean and in very good condition; the dust-wrapper has a tear in the upper panel, but no loss, and is a little creased at the edges and worn a little at the corners. A very good copy however, with an excellent presentation inscription.
