A Room in Chelsea Square

Anonymous [Nelson, Michael]


1st Edition

First edition. Publisher’s checkered black and red cloth boards with white lettering to spine. Slight lean to spine. Otherwise a fine copy. In Hans Tisdall designed dust jacket. Short closed tear to head of front panel and some rubbing to spine ends; vertical crease to spine. *** A very attractive first printing of Michael Nelson’s roman de clef, published anonymously at the time due to its homosexual content and thinly veiled portrayals of prominent London literary figures (Cyril Connolly, Stephen Spender, Peter Watson, amongst others).
