Descripción Jonathan Cape, LONDON, 1940. Hardback. Estado de conservación: Fine. First Edition. Sydney Carlyle Cockerell was a curator at the British Museum and Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. He had may literary friends including William Morris, T E Lawrence, A E Housman, W B Yeats, Sir James Barrie and Thomas Hardy. He was executor to Thomas Hardy's literary estate and he was a prime mover in arranging, what was essentially a state funeral, for Hardy in Westminster Abbey against the author's express wishes. Viola Meynell gained access to Cockerell's files of correspondence and this book includes letters to him and will be of interest to students of the literary scene in the late 1800s and the first half of the twentieth century. Tipped in to the half title is a signed a.l.s. from Cockerell to Wilfred Blunt who was at the time the Curator of the G F Watts Museum at Compton in Surrey. This copy in the original blue boards with gilt titling to the spine has som bumps to the extremities and usual rubs from shelf wear. There is some occasional but informed marginalia but this does not affect the text. A dustwrapper is not present. A rare and desirable association copy. Ref J2 Size: 384pp. Signed a.l.s laid in.
