I Leonardo signed association copy Ralph Steadman 1st / 1st 1983

£275.00Price

First edition and first print published by Jonathan Cape in 1983. This is a very good + copy. The wrapper has some creasing to the top left hand corner of the front panel and minor rubbing to the edges and corners. The book has some very minor handling wear along the edges. The jacket hasn't been clipped. Overall a very good + copy.

 

This is a signed presentation copy from Ralph Steadman to English Playwright Sir Anold Wesker and his wife Doreen 'Dusty' Wesker. He is known for over 50 plays including Roots, The Kitchen and The Very Own and Golden City. He was knighted in 2006. He married Doreen Bicker in 1958 and this book was presented to them for their 25th wedding aniversary. Steadman in his own flamboyant style has doodled across one side 'congratulations' and on the other there are the signatures of the Weskers and Steadman's that is also dated. Steadman also writes '25 good reasons to be careful'. This is a scarce presentation copy from the artist and Arnold Wesker.
