A Time to Keep Silence by Patrick Leigh Fermor 1st / 1st 1953 Queen Anne Press
First edition and impression of this beautiful private press copy published by The Queen Anne Press in 1953. This is copy 346 of 500. The wrapper is in fantastic condition. No tears or rips it is complete and not clipped. There is a small booksellers label to the rear inside flap. The book looks to be unread with again a booksellers small label to the inside front board. Overall NEAR FINE. A superior copy of this rare title from Patrick Leigh Fermor.
In these three meditations on monastic life at home and abroad the author describes from personal experience the benefit of occassional retreat into the discipline and calm of the cloister.
