Unholy Crusade

WHEATLEY, Dennis

FROM THE LIBRARY OF CHRISTINA FOYLE

WHEATLEY, Dennis Unholy Crusade

Hutchinson, 1967.

First edition. Red cloth in pictorial dustwrapper. AUTHOR'S PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed to friend and mentor, Christina Foyle, "For Christina / With much affection from her old friend / Dennis" A fine copy in a fine self-laminated pictorial dustwrapper.

Christina Foyle was one of Wheatley's earliest patrons, and bought several of his books for her Book Club. Wheatley's right of centre political views were recognised by Christina, of the bookshop Foyles, who invited him to be a Patron for the new Right Book Club, "to counter, to some extent," as Wheatley wrote, "the spate of subversive stuff which, for several years past, had been pouring from the Left Book Club under the aegis of Victor Gollancz"
