Descripción:

61pp. Despite the total limitation reading 700 copies the accepted wisdom is that there were 200 signed copies, and 300 unsigned; see Hugh Ford 'Published in Paris', Nancy Cunard 'Those were the Hours' and the 'Hour's Press Booklet' put together by Wyn Henderson. To help ease the pressure of work, Nancy took on a temporary office manager called Wyn Henderson and an assistant printer called John Sibthorpe. While Nancy was away on holiday, Mrs. Henderson chose the bindings for the two editions of 'Last Straws'. The signed edition is bound in jade-green suede and the unsigned is in light brown paper boards with designs by Douglas Cockerell. The story is about three English army officers who meet in a Paris night club, and begin to discuss the war that they have been through, at the end, one of them returns to England and shoots his wife's lover and himself. 'Last Straws' sold well and Mrs. Henderson decided to send Aldington a cheque for advanced royalties. Surprisingly, Aldington sent back the cheque with an angry letter stating that he had given the story to Nancy Cunard to publish and not the manager. Limited edition No. 84 of 200 copies, SIGNED by the author, from a total limitation of 500. Slight bowing to boards, and suede covering scuffed and worn, internally very good. Royal 8vo.
