NABOTH'S VINEYARD. E. OE. Somerville and Martin Ross. Spencer Blackett, London 1891 First Edition. 280pp 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 Œnone 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. 'Naboth's Vineyard' was the couple's second book and is a novel of Ireland and laced with Irish wit and humour which was to become the keystone of some of their later bestsellers including the Irish R.M. books. This rare First Edition is bound in what may well be a variant binding as the name at the bottom of the spine in gilt letters is 'Griffin Farran & Co's Standard Library' The boards and spine are burgundy linen with black stamping to the front and back edges. The titling to the front and spine is gilt. There is some damage to the head of the spine with some loss however the stock is tight and bright with no foxing or marks save for a neat signature of a previous owner to the title page. This is just one of a great number of Somerville and Ross Books that I am selling, please see my listings for others. Ref J3 Size: 280pp. N° de ref. de la librería 002919
