First edition in a dust jacket. Inscribed "To Mary from Marcia Christmas 1974". Marcia Falkender was Harold Wilson's influential Private and Political Secretary. The book was inscribed in the year Wilson resigned as Prime Minister and promoted Marcia to the House of Lords. Rumours have persisted that Harold Wilson and Marcia Falkender were in an affair and that Mary Wilson knew this; which makes the choice of this particular title A Scandalous Woman quite an intriguing one. A fantastic association copy from the collection of Harold and Mary Wilson. Provenance: Hansons Auctioneers - A Prime Minister's Life - The Collection of Harold & Mary Wilson - Friday 10 May 2019.
