Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs in April and May. The Edinburgh Premier Fair and the UK Fine Press Book Fair have been rescheduled for November. The Oxford Premier has also been rescheduled for October. Keep checking our website for updates.
Book Description
Short, polite typed letter thanking Mr Ross for his correspondence. Mentions the on-going struggle for the PLR Act. A single, central fold, a little creasing, else, very good (but without a sniff, alas, of her wit and bite, though her pugnacity gets a mention).
Dealer Notes
Described by an anonymous reviewer as ‘one of our leading literary shrews,’ Brigid Brophy, Lady Levey, was an Anglo-Irish novelist, critic and campaigner. She made her name with novels like Hackenfeller's Ape (1953) and The Finishing Touch (1963), as well as critical works, including a biography of Ronald Firbank, Prancing Novelist (1973). As the letter suggests, with Maureen Duffy, Lettice Cooper and others, Brophy fought for, and won, an authors’ Public Lending Right (PLR); she also campaigned for animal rights. Victor Ross was Chairman of Reader’s Digest. [ref: 1386]
