FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY DOUGLAS: "Vyvyan Holland from Norman Douglas 11 July 1930." Douglas, whose novel South Wind is set on Capri, lived there for much of his adult life. On his release from prison in 1897, Oscar Wilde also spent one night in Capri, where he was infamously refused service in the island's restaurants.
