NOTIONS IN GARRISON. E. OE. Somerville and Martin Ross. Methuen & Co, London. 1941 First edition. 134pp 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 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. This scarce book which is barely mentioned in any of the biographies of the author is a collection of spiritual encounters that the author has chronicled from polter geists to ghost stories related to her by the agricultural workers in her native West Cork. This FIRST EDITION is bound in original tan linen covered boards with black titling to the spine which is sunned. There are some marks to the boards and the light outline of of a Boots Library label. the uncut pages are tight and bright. A dustwrapper is not present.
