PORTER, HAL. - Short Stories.

n.p. n.d. [Adelaide, the author 1943]. 235x185mm, printed wrapper, 64pp. Cover a touch marked and used; a pretty good copy. Numbered and signed by Porter; an edition of 200 copies? ¶ Porter’s first book by a long way and scarcer than an edition of 200 copies would suggest. Here's a lesson in the value of the horse's mouth: centuries ago I bought from Joy Robinson, Porter's close friend, copy number 2 inscribed to her with some added stuff. Joy told me with inarguable authority that copy number 1 went to Porter's mother. Trouble is, mother was near fifteen years dead when the book appeared. Copy number one actually went to Porter's lover.
