London, Chatto & Windus, 1956. Inscribed by Pritchett, "To mother and father with all my love Victor." A novelist, critic, travel writer and short story writer, Pritchett was most well-known, and most highly regarded, for his short fiction. He has been compared to Chekhov, about whom he wrote a well-received biography of Chekhov. A couple of incidental turns to page corners; very near fine in a near fine dust jacket with several tiny edge chips. A very nice family association copy. [#029606] $500
