Catalogue Note

BRYAN FORBES AND NANETTE NEWMAN'S COPY. Director and writer Bryan Forbes (1926-2013) was a longstanding friend of Greene, and often claimed that his great ambition was to write a book as good as The End of the Affair. Forbes and actress Nanette Newman were married for 58 years.

The folding box in which this copy in preserved bears a small Napoleonic bee stamped in gilt, which appears on many boxes from Forbes' library and also on his bookplate.
