Printed by The Alcuin Press, Gloustershire, in an edition limited to 350 numbered copies, signed by the author (Gibbs A7a). James Hanley (1901-1985) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, and playwright, who ran away from home at the age of thirteen to become a merchant seaman, returning ten years later. He was considered by many of his contemporaries to be the greatest sea writer since Conrad, his characters frequently being poor, simple, inarticulate men in the grip of obsessions. Covers lightly soiled.
