The Complete Memoirs: Blessings in Disguise (both editions), My Name Escapes Me, A Positively Final Appearance

London: Hamish Hamilton, 1985, 1996, 1999. First Edition. Four volumes. Each volume elegantly SIGNED and dated by Alec Guinness in fountain pen on the title page, and each dated in the year of publication.

The great British actor's ambitious, hilarious, and thoughtful memoirs, issued in three volumes in 1985, 1996, and 1999 respectively. Additionally there was a revised edition of the first volume issued in 1996 with a new jacket design and an added chapter, "Ophidia and Others," included here.

The middle volume contains an introduction by John le Carre, to whom Guinness linked himself inextricably with his defining performance as George Smiley in the 1979 BBC Production of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," generally thought to be one of the finest tales of espionage ever filmed. And that performance is but the tip of the iceberg for the actor who illuminated film after film for decades, beginning with "Great Expectations" (1946), and running through the likes of "Oliver Twist" (1948), "Kind Hearts and Coronets" (1949), "The Lavender Hill Mob" (1951), "The Man in the White Suit" (1951), "The Captain's Paradise" (1953), "The Ladykillers" (1955), "The Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957), "The Horse's Mouth" (1958), "Tunes of Glory" (1960), "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962), and of course, "Star Wars" (1977).

Each volume Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket.
