1933 A Communication to My Friends
What Our Customers Say...
Direct from the library of the late Hugh Selbourne MD (1906-1973) a noted book collector and diarist. Limited edition published by the Nonesuch Press. Number 18 of 1000 copies. Title page design by Stephen Gooden. Planning of the book by Francis Meynell and printed by Ernest Ingham. The Nonesuch Press specialised in limited edition and private press. They were unusual among private presses as they used a small Albion press to design the books, but had them printed by commercial printers. In doing so, books with the quality of a fine-press were produced, but available to a wider audience at lower prices. Moore's Communication is first and foremost a memoir and, as he states to the opening passage is 'the story of how literature hailed me'. George Moore was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, memoirist and dramatist.
