Wheatley (Dennis) Mediterranean Nights – with signed photograph
First edition, .
A collection of Wheatley’s short stories, rare in the dust-jacket.
Included with this is a signed photograph of the German singer & actress Renate Müller (1906-1937), who was the inspiration for the Wheatley short story ‘Espionage’. A tragic life cut short on the back of a blossoming career, either being murdered by the Gestapo or intimidated by them sufficiently that she seemingly took her own life. The story and a short discussion of the incident involved are included in this collection.
