A presentation copy, inscribed in pencil on the front free endpaper 'To Carl from Will Dyson'. Will Dyson was an Australian pictorial satirist who came to England in 1912 to work for the Labour newspaper The Daily Herald where he was given a full page to champion the working man. He published in 1919 an eerily prophetic cartoon showing Woodrow Wilson, Lloyd George and Clemenceau leaving the Versailles conference, Clemenceau saying 'Curious. I seem to hear a child weeping', the child in the cartoon labelled 'Class of 1940'.

Covers just faded, dust jacket soiled, torn at the head of the spine with some loss.
