284 pages. The jacket is lightly chipped along the head and has a short, closed tear at the edge of the tail's spine, the body of the book is clean, solid and full of surprises. There is a handwritten dedication on the front paste down by Dymphna Cusack to Sir Edward Dunlop (Weary Dunlop); pasted to the front end paper a typed sheet "Extracts from Reviews of a Bough in Hell", amongst the pages is a typed copy, unsigned, in which Weary Dunlop thanks Dymphna Cusack for the book. 'A Bough in Hell 'deals with alcoholism and Weary Dunlop was President of the Victorian Foundation on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (1970-82). And finally tucked in the letter is the mailing lable and return address in which the book was posted. I think I can say without butchering the English language that this copy is unique.
