New York: William Morrow, 1946.
Hardcover. First American edition. Modest soiling on the cloth boards, very good or better lacking the dustwrapper. Full page Inscription by Bagnold to her friend Cecil Beaton: "Christmas 1946. Dearest Cecil, This has just come out in America with a foreword by me, so I send it as greeting. Farewell - I'm going to S. Africa for 3 months. I'd have given the world to have seen you acting Lady Windermere. Love, Enid." Beaton would go on to design the sets for Bagnold's play *The Chalk Garden*.
