Descripción

First Edition. ASSOCIATION COPY, inscribed in 1942 by Michael Powell: "For Roy Plomley / who knows all about desert islands / Michael Powell / 1942." The book was inscribed on the occasion of Powell's appearance on the BBC radio program Desert Island Discs, where he was interviewed by Plomley, the show's founder.Michael Powell re-appeared in the 1980s and 1990s under the auspices of Martin Scorsese, and examples of books he inscribed during that period turn up with some regularity. We have, however, only seen one other example of a contemporary inscription on this title, Powell's first book.A diary-like account of the making of his classic 1937 film, "The Edge of the World," a project that was very close to his heart and his first film to be shot in the beloved Scottish Isles (the next was I Know Where I'm Going, in 1945). The film's story was inspired by the evacuation of St. Kilda, and won the director an introduction to the great British producer Alexander Korda, followed, of course, by a decades-long teaming with Emeric Pressburger and a brilliant career. Photo illustrated throughout.Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket. A small bit of foxing to the endpapers, and a single small spot of discoloration to the backstrip. Jacket shows some rubbing and very shallow creasing at a few extremities, but has no loss. N° de ref. de la librería 134288
