Reader's note

If you collect blue Penguin books or simply, vintage biographies, then this 1954 first edition of Maiden Voyage by Denton Welch would be a lovely addition to your home library! In her foreword to Maiden Voyage, Dr Edith Sitwell describes Denton Welch as a 'born writer', and it was by the publication of this, his first book, that he achieved his place in English letters. The opening chapters give an account of his last term at a public school and of his running away on the day he was to return there. After this his father, who was at that time in China, wrote suggesting that his son should go out to join him. And so it was that he went to a country whose atmosphere could not have been more suitable for his enquiring and unusual mind.
