Price: £8.50

Quantity: 1 available


Hardback, 227mm x 150mm brown cloth boards, yellow titles, first thus, 410+pp. plus index, Black and white illustrations. Good/Less than good. Owners inscription. Spine bumped, block a little darkened, top edge grubby but pages basically clean. Overall a little flimsy as with most wartime Uk productions. Dustwrapper (now protected) is worn around edges with loss of lower half of spine, some loss also at top edge. The "vivid and exciting" portrait of a famous English novelist first published by Cape in 1932 and re-issued by Academy Books in 1935, as listed on copyright page. But this is - without any doubt - a wartime book whose inscription date of 1945 is also most likely for publication. Catalogue: Literary Biography. Keywords: Thackeray, biography, Vanity
