Hamish Hamilton, 1985, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with short nicks to the head of the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “My birth certificate registers me as Alec Guinness de Cuffe, born in Marylebone, London, 2nd April 1914; my father’s name is left a speculative blank. The mystery has never been solved, though Alec Guinness would later be the recipient of certain intriguing theories. But, in any case, Blessings in Disguise is not an autobiography which tells all, an exercise in egomania as purveyed by so many actors and actresses. What can be said, without the faintest chance of contradiction, is that it is one of the wittiest, most entertaining memoirs to come out of the theatre in many a long day.
