MARIA and Some Other Dogs. E. OE. Somerville and Marin Ross. Methuen & Co Ltd., London 1949 First edition 126pp Illustrated Hardback. Somerville and Ross were two extraordinary Irish writers. Second cousins and products of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy world, they reacted both with and against their environment to present in their books a deceptively indulgent view of the Irish and English. The reality of their lives was somewhat different. Each was gifted, but it was only in combination that they could fulfil their true potential. When Martin Ross died in 1915 as a result of a riding accident, Edith continued, through spiritual communication, to see herself as collaborating with her dead cousin, whose name she never ceased to add to the title page of her books. Edith Somerville in the fascinating alternative guises of master of fox hounds, spiritualist, artist and practical feminist. Born into land-owning Protestant families in the South West of Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century, Edith Oenone Somerville (1858-1949) and Violet Martin (1862-1915), wrote in partnership as Somerville and Ross. Their novels and short stories intimately detail the social and political conditions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in Ireland. They produced one of the most popular and best-selling series of comic Irish short stories of its time - the Irish R.M. tales (1899-1914) - as well as one of Ireland's most critically acclaimed novels to date, The Real Charlotte (1894). After Ross's death, Somerville received messages from her via 'automatic writing', and used this spiritual communication to continue their literary collaboration. This was to be Edith's last book published in the year of her death and written as a tribute to all the dogs she had kept and found pleaure with in their company. This copy is ex libris, Boots Library, and bears the characteristic green bookplate to the front board. There is also a small remnant of the library issuing log to the r.e.p. Bound in yellow linen covered boards with with blue titling to the spine and a reproduction of one of Edith's sketches to the front board.The stock is clean, bright and tight. A dustwrapper is not present. This is just one of a great number of Somerville & Ross books I am selling, please see my listings for other titles.
