The first volume is signed by the author on the title-page, and has a two-page autograph letter tipped-in from Macmillan to Councillor (later Sir) William Cocker, of Accrington, written in 1949 to thank him for a gift ('I am writing to you with the pen - which is really a beauty'), and saying that whilst they share a common belief in individual enterprise, 'we have not forgotten the people from whom we have sprung'; there is also a typed letter from Macmillan's office to Austin D. Smith.
