1p., 4to. In good condition, on lightly-aged and creased paper. Salzman's book had been published by Heffers of Cambridge in the previous year, and Brown finds that its 'scraps make such excellent feeding'. In the previous month he has found that 'owing to the various expeditions to cultural centres and other tasks imposed on the partakers in the B.B.C.'s Critics' Programme, labours additional to normal (moderately gainful) occupations, I have been confronted with some specimens of Pictorial Art which do more than justify your wise and witty observations on the subject [.] In theatres and cinemas, as well as in Art Galleries, one has the frequent sensation of standing on a cow-pat. Shoe-cleaning might go down against Tax Assessment as a necessary professional expense in these days. The word brain-washing has its special political meaning: but it might be applied to the cleansing required after a dose of current films and plays.' He has seen John Arden's play 'Live Like Pigs' at the Royal Court in Sloane Square, and it 'seemed to me to be typical and could have born an even more swinish title'. The rest of the letter relates to Shakespearian textual emendations. " My only ( and much rejected) emendation to the First Folio concerns Macbeth's incarnading of the multitudinous seas [.]" He explains himself. N° de ref. de la librería 13764
