Date of publication:
original publisher's wrappers
Arthur Wellard (1902-1980) (Somerset, England and Gaieties)
Wrappers, wire-stitched. A few small, faint splash marks to last page of text, otherwise a nice copy. Second issue, with the frontispiece integral (as opposed to mounted). With Pinter's compliments slip stapled to the inside of the upper wrapper, inscribed to literary agent Gillon Aitken: "Sep. 21 / Dear Gillon / Here's Arthur / Wellard / Yours / Harold". Cricket enthusiast Harold Pinter was Chairman of the Gaieties C.C. and published this tribute to Wellard, who had played and umpired for Gaieties towards the end of his life.
