Lengthy inscription with excellent content on the front free endpaper: "For dearest Richard, some paragraphs were left out by the stupidity of my publisher. You will find them on page 232 - between Alfred Hitchcock and Douglas Fairbanks! You can if you will burn the horrible "book jacket" - a tasteless folly again of my publisher. I hope it won't bore you as much as it now does me. Bless you, Cathleen."
