Hardback.  First Edition.  In original dust-jacket.  Presentation copy from the editor, Claude Colleer Abbot.  ‘This unique and absorbing correspondence began when Paul Nash borrowed from a friend Gordon Bottomley’s play The Crier by Night, and returned it ‘covered with drawings and grime’.  Impressed by the drawings the owner showed the copy to Bottomley, and he wrote to Paul Nash a letter discerning priase such as the artist, then only twenty, most needed’.  Wonderful exchange of letters in which Bottomley extols the virtues of Blake and the Pre-Raphaelites at a time when Cezanne and the Post-Impressionists were all the rage.  End-papers and edges slightly foxed.  Some scattered foxing to pages.  Some fading to spine of dust-jacket and light shelf-wear to corners.  Dust-jacket price-clipped, otherwise very good.
