First and only print published by the boys at the press of Dr Barnardo's Homes in 1935. This is a very good + copy. The wrappers have some light creasing to the corners. The pages are in general clean and clear of handling marks. The title page has been inscribed to a previous owner by the author and done so fairly recently. Fry says "Kenneth, I think the date of printing was 1934, with best wishes Christopher now in 2000". 

 

This is the author's first publication and exceptionally rare, especially so signed. It is an early play of his where he dramatises the establishment of Barnardos homes. A rare title with these attributes.
