Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. First printings are rare signed.

In publisher's wrappers. First Hungarian edition. (12), 11-144, (2) p. First Hungarian edition of Koestler's anti-communist Magnum Opus the "Darkness at Noon". Arthur Koestler (1905-1983) was a Hungarian-British author and journalist, who was engaged with Communism and worked as an agent of the Comintern until his disillusionment with Stalinism in 1938.

Forster, from West Hackhurst," Abinger, where he lived from 1924 to 1946. This copy was later gifted by Forster to his friend Eric Fletcher, who had met him when he was an undergraduate at King's College between 1945 and 1948. The 68 year old Forster was, by then, firmly settled into Cambridge college life, living the life of a traditional bachelor don, "...he was looked after; he was among friends; he knew the way of life and loved the city and it's buildings... and at his age it was convenient" (Furbank), and modestly put up with his great fame, finding his enormous daily post a nuisance but enjoying a stream of visitors, many of them young men who looked on him as a mentor or sage. One of these young men was Eric Fletcher. They immediately struck up a warm friendship and embarked on a correspondence of "several hundred letters of gossip, affection… Read more
