(6),vii-xiii,(5),1-[71],(7). 8vo, black illustrasted card co vers with blue and white lettering to front and spine. "As in his novels 'Fifth Business', 'The Manticore', and 'World of Wonders', Robertson Davies here is once again concerned with the process of self-discovery. In this case the self-explorer is the Prime Minister of Canada, Peter Macadam, a man living a role that inevitably turns a private person into public property. As the play unfolds, Davies raises important questions about politics, the media, and a host of other subjects. But above all, his witty, urbane, and thought-provoking play is, as he says in his preface written especially for this edition, 'about the relationship of the Canadian people to their soil,and about the relationship of man to his soul. We neglect both at our peri l.'" - from the rear cover. Name to flyleaf, four characters inked inside rear cover, else very good. 30.00

Spadoni and Grant, A Bibliography of Robertson Davies, A16a.1. "Everyoune who loves reading should rejoice in this book, in which an urbane, robust, and wonderfully opinionated voice speaks of the delights of reading, and of what masseducation has done to readers today, to taste, to books, to culture. Rober tson Davies, the enfant terrible of Canadian letters, addresses the readingpublic from what he calls 'America's Attic' -- Canada. In 'A Voice from th e Attic', Mr. Davies, with a special charm, ranges through the world of letters, awakening sleepers, stirring minds, calling upon the clerisy to resume their sovereignty. And who are the clerisy? 'Those who read for pleasure,but not for idleness; who read for pastime, but not to kill time; who love books, but do not live by books'. This book is a ramble, full of happy dig ressions, through Mr. Davies's own remembered joy of reading; so infectiousis his gusto that he compels us to follow him along a path which, however circuitous, encompasses a universe of books. He talks of varous types of literature popular in the past and at present -- the Victorian novel, 'self-help' books, humor, pornography, to mention only a few. Everything is handled with a light grace, except the critics, for whom Mr. Davies has some rough words. His readers will delight in his witty and perceptive observations on the world of literature." - from the dustjacket. Very good in lightly nicked, price-clipped dustjacket. 60.00
