Brooke (Jocelyn)

The Crisis in Bulgaria or, Ibsen to the Rescue!

Publication Details: Chatto & Windus, 1956

Notes: Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf: 'John Lehmann, with all good wishes from Jocelyn'. A very funny jeu d'esprit, the pictorial element somewhat in the line of Max Ernst's 'Une Semaine de bonté', with Brooke's text heightening the absurdity. Latterly the copy of noted collector and film-maker Jonathan Gili with his characteristic pencilled purchase notes at foot of rear pastedown - pointing out Brooke's having been published by Lehmann in an issue of Orpheus.
