“STORME, Michael” – [DAWSON, George Herbert, 1916-1980] : DAME IN MY BED.

Cleveland : Kaywin Publishers, (1951).

Crown 8vo (19cm). 128pp. Original pictorial stapled wrappers – a lively design by Reginald Heade; slightly worn at head and chipped at foot; wrappers slightly worn and chipped; text lightly tanned, but still a good copy. Just two copies (British Library and Indiana) located in major libraries worldwide.
