The Richard Vyvyan to whom the author presented the book was almost certainly the academic and schoolteacher of that name, who spent much of his career teaching at the International School at Geneva in Switzerland – see https://alumni.ecolint.ch/news/news.asp?id=315955. Richard Vyvyan had strong connections to Italy, and (as befits an academic) the book has several print-outs included loose, such as ‘Times’ obituaries of people mentioned in the book.
The book was also published in paperback, but all editions are now out of print.
