London Heinemann 1959 
First Edition, First Printing. Laid in is an June 26, 1967 Autograph Postcard Signed from Vivien Leigh to actress Lilli Palmer and her husband Carlos Thompson: "Quite obviously you and Carlos think they are a bore but I am far more worried about L.  I would love to see you  fondly as always  Vivien". (”L.” refers to Laurence Olivier by then married to Joan Plowright, was Olivier's new wife after the divorce. Leigh was worried about Olivier's workload and onset of stage fright. The bores are believed to be the Lunts with whom Lilli Palmer's husband Carlos had an unmotivated quarrel, as he apparently had with so many others.) The play, Look After Lulu, starred Vivien Leigh with its first night performance on July 29th, 1959. This published book has a printed dedication of the play to Leigh by Coward. Additionally, laid in is a printed card which reads: “With Mr. Noel Coward's Compliments.” Former ownership signature whited-out on front flyleaf else a very good copy in a very good price-clipped dust jacket.
