London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1983

Large 8vo, pp. 200. Original black boards, lettered in silver to spine. Grey endpapers. Photographic dustwrapper. Faint crease to lower corner of front free endpaper, some very faint finger smudges to title page (not affecting inscription), but a near fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper with just a little light edgewear.

First edition, INSCRIBED BY PARKINSON TO BOB 'BLOCKBUSTERS' HOLNESS: 'Bob - floreat the VOICE! Norman Parkinson 83'.

From 1975 to 1985, Bob Holness co-presented a morning radio show on London's LBC, and over the years amassed a large collection of inscribed copies of books plugged by their authors on the show. Norman Parkinson was a particularly fine catch.

An excellent -- if slightly unexpected -- association.
