[pseud. MATTHEWS, Ronald] COUSINS, Sheila

To Beg I Am Ashamed

Paris: Obelisk Press, 1938

8vo, pp. 270. Original yellow stiff paper wrappers, lettered in red and black on front and rear panels and spine. Edges uncut.

Second edition, first Obelisk edition. The publisher's note on [vi] states: 'An attack against the book, in the London press, of unprecedented ferocity and vindictiveness caused its withdrawal before publication [by Routledge]. This, the Obelisk edition, published in May 1938, is therefore the first effective edition.' Despite being withdrawn before publication, a few copies of the Routledge edition have survived.

It is sometimes claimed, usually by bookdealers, that this book was written by Graham Greene. It wasn't. Although Greene helped his friend by chipping in with a telling phrase here and there -- phrases he would later quote approvingly when he contrived to review the book -- To Beg I Am Ashamed is almost entirely the work of Ronald Matthews.

A very nice copy of a fragile, cheaply made book.
