Dennis Nilsen’s Signed Brian Master's Book (description coming)
This is Dennis Nilsen’s hardback copy of the book sent to him by Brian Masters by way of introduction, in March 1983 (the month after his arrest). It was the book by which Dennis Nilsen judged Brian Masters to be a suitable author to write his biography, Killing for Company. This book, and the initial meeting of the two men, was referred to in the UK TV drama, Des. The dust jacket is ripped in two and on the reverse side is three lines of text written by Dennis Nilsen. It would appear to be the sta rt of a poem but it is unknown: “To die is very easy the trembling man has said this chapter on lifes” Dennis Nilsen has signed the title page: “Given to Des Nilsen from Brian Masters March 1983” The original introduction card with ‘with the Author’s compliments’ is also included.
