PRIESTLEY, J.B. Margin Released. A Writer's Reminiscences and Reflections. Heinemann, 1962.

8vo., original cloth with dust wrapper. A wrapper a little chipped, rubbed and worn, browning to half-title from (now removed) newspaper cutting, with some other lightly browned pages, otherwise a very good copy.
First edition inscribed by Priestley to Michael Foot on titile-page, "Michael Foot from J.B.P". With Michael Foot's ownership signature on front free endpaper. Foot has marked some passages in the margins.
With loosely inserted a typed letter signed by Priestley, dated Sept 16th 1971, on Priestley's Kissing Tree House headed staitionary to Michael and Jill Foot. "My Dear Jill and Michael, I must thank you very specially for your tobacco box present, which I really do appreciate. Monday's party seemed to go very well, chiefly I think because we deliberately kept the number down. I didn't see enough of either of you, but then I never seem to do of anybody at our parties, and I wonder at the end of the evening what the hell I must have been doing with myself. Let's meet again soon. Yours ever. Jack"
Priestley and Foot were both founding members of CND in 1958. It is possible that this letter may refer to a later CND function.
