First edition in a dust jacket. Inscribed "For Harold & Mary Wilson with warmest regards R J Minney November 1964"; shortly after Wilson became Prime Minister. Numerous monochrome illustrations. A nice connection, Minney worked at Rank Films as a producer and probably came into contact with Wilson then, Wilson being one of the Working Party on Film Production costs in the late 1940s. Minney also stood as a Labour candidate and came close to unseating Edward Heath in the safe Conservative Bexley constituency in 1955. A memorial service was held at St James's Piccadilly on 5 April 1979 and Sir Harold Wilson MP read the lesson while Virginia McKenna read a poem from the film "Carve Her Name with Pride" The book is tightly bound. Edges a little marked. Dust jacket complete, sunned/faded to spine and extremities; unclipped showing 36/-. Internally the book is clean, free of markings and foxing.
