“for Gilbert Foyle with pleasant memories of many years, very cordially from his friend the author, A. J. A. Symons Feb. 1934”.
Symons got to know the Foyle brothers William and Gilbert during the early 1920s, when he worked on his Nineties Bibliography; they were partners in the First Edition Club established by Symons in 1922 and indeed were its backers from 1923 to 1927.
An outstanding inscription to an intimate associate and a notable figure in London bookselling circles.
