Berlin, 1911-1999, was a dancer, painter, sculptor, writer and poet, one of the last surviving members of the St Ives School in Cornwall. This was his second novel and its motive was, in some degree, to vent personal anger over the hypocrisy of an over-close competitive art colony. The book was published and 575 copies were sold before its withdrawal from sale after no fewer than four libel actions by members of that colony. Copies were pulped, with probably only around 100 surviving. This is an uncorrected proof copy. It is therefore an interesting survival and has to be considered very scarce. £295.00
