Product description

Faintly Smiling Mouth - Eric Bligh (1961) - vintage autobiographical book
 
Eric Bligh, "Faintly Smiling Mouth" (London, Martin Secker & Warburg Ltd., 1961). Vintage hardback autobiographical book (green and red speckled cloth boards, gilt titles to spine) with original dustwrapper designed by Derek Williams, 190pp, measuring approximately 13.5 x 20.6 x 2.2cm (5.3 x 8.1 x 0.85in). In this sequel to his boyhood autobiography "Tooting Corner", Bligh writes "in an entirely different mood. The period is about 1908-1914. It is largely a London book, more particularly South London, though his descriptions show no great love or loyalty for it and its doubtful urban amenities."
 
The dustjacket (now covered with a clear protective sleeve) is discoloured with marks, stains and some fading together with age wear including tearing, creasing and bumping, although it has not been price-clipped; the cover remains in good condition apart from slight discoloration and edge / corner wear; the inside covers and endpapers are discoloured with some marks together with a slight indentation to the corner of the front endpaper where old prices have been erased; the pages are discoloured with tanning to the edges together with some edge and corner wear (including nicks / indentations and slight creases) and general reading wear.
