PRIVATE ANGELO. Eric Linklater. Privately Published. 1957 238pp Hardback. A dust wrapper is not called for. This special complimentary edition, of which there were just 2000 copies, was bound in pink and grey paper covered boards with gilt titling to the spine. The endpapers are by David Gentleman. They were priivately printed for Sir Allen Lane and Richard Lane. It is believed to be the first book produced in England entirely without use of metal type. Text and display were composed on the Intertype Fotosetter. In this new method of 'photo-matrices' are assembled into lines on a normal keyboard. They are then automatically photographed one by one, on a film positive which advances horizontally by the correct width of each letter and when the line is complete, moves vertically into position ready to receive the next line. The book was printed in offset lithography by McCorquodale & Co Ltd., deep etched plates having been made from the fim positives described above. The book is printed on fine india paper. Laid in is the rare seasonal goodwill card signed by Allen Lane with no other dedication. Private Angelo was written by Scottish author Eric Linklater and first published in 1946. It had subsequently been made into a 1949 film of the same name by Pilgrim Pictures, produced by and starring Peter Ustinov as well as adapted for the stage by Mike Maran Productions. The novel covers the (mis)adventures of an Italian soldier during World War II. The offspring of an English father and an Italian mother, the eponymous main character of the novel found himself unwillingly drafted into the Italian army, with Count Pontefiore, Commanding Officer of the 914th Regiment of Tuscan Infantry, as his colonel. Not only was the Count Angelo's patron, but he was also a former lover of Angelo's mother. Ref FF2 Size: 238pp. N° de ref. de la librería 010583
