GREENE, Graham The Great Jowett

Bodley Head, 1981.

First edition, number 9 of 525 copies signed by the author. Additionally inscribed by Greene "For Gillian and John, Christmas 1981". Original orange cloth, lettered in gilt, in original unprinted glassine. A near fine copy, faded to the spine, in the original unprinted glassine.

John and Gillian Sutro shared a close friendship with Graham Green which begun with Mario Soldati's introduction of them in Rome in 1947 and continued for the rest of their lives. He went as far as injecting the couple's passion for collecting owls into The Human Factor (also naming a separately published extract from that novel 'A Wedding Among The Owls'), and in 1963 dedicated A Sense Of Reality to the Sutros.
The Great Jowett was written as a radio play for the BBC, broadcast in May 1939.
