Water Music for a Botanist. By Michael Redgrave. First edition, 8vo, [4]pp, Cambridge, W. Heffer & Sons Ltd, 1929.
Scarce; signed dedication from the author to Peter [Burra] on the inside front flap, printed dedication to L[ouis] Le B[reton], original pink wrappers with a woodcut design by Raymond McGrath. Light sunning near spine. A very good copy.
With a loosely inserted A.L.s from Sir Michael Redrave to Peter Burra, 2pp., Magdalene College, Cambridge, 28th February 1931, discussing Burra's forthcoming publications, "Congratulations on your Duckworth "forthcoming" announcement and the ever admirable production of Farrago," and with some critical comments upon his own radio programmes: ""Edith Evans (it is a pity I can't admire her as an actress ... She doesn't know what she's doing though, as I always suspected. One listens to every word because it is so queer. Nerves are not acting.")
