4to. Dustwrapper very slightly nicked, and slightly darkened and rubbed at spine. Inscribed by the author to Paul (later Sir Paul, later Lord) Reilly, "To Paul Misha August '60"; mounted on the front pastedown a presentation typed letter signed from the author to Paul Reilly, 1p. 4to, Design Research Unit, 17 August 1960 - "Another picture book, I fear - but I shall be delighted if you find an odd corner for it somewhere on your bookshelves." Loosely inserted are news-cuttings from The Times of Sir Misha Black's death notice, obituary and notice of memorial service, together with the printed order of service for the last (at St James's, Piccadilly; Reilly gave the address), and an autograph letter signed from Marcus Brumwell (a co-founder with Black of the Design Research Unit in 1943), 1p. 8vo, Creekvean, 12 August 1977, suggesting that Reilly, Director of the Council of Industrial Design (later the Design Council), was the author of the Times obituary ("its very good indeed"). A leading architect and designer, Black was Professor of Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art, 1959-75. "He arrived at these distinctions by a circuitous route," wrote Paul Reilly for the DNB, "for industrial design was an unknown, untaught subject when he was born. He had to work his way towards his final goal through what he called 'stomach fillers' such as book-plates, book jackets, posters and, more important for his future career, exhibition stands . . ." Among Misha Black's early 'stomach fillers' were the dustwrappers for Anthony Powell's first four novels, the first, Afternoon Men, published when Black was just 20 (cf Keith Marshall, Anthony Powell Society Newsletter, 49, 2013).
