From a View to a Death

POWELL, Anthony

POWELL, Anthony From a View to a Death

Duckworth, 1933.

First edition. Original olive cloth with gilt titles in pictorial dustwrapper designed by Misha Black. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper to close friend, Bobby Bevan, "For Bobbie [sic], who covers the waterfront but, isn't always watching the sea. from Tony Powell Feb 13th 1935". A near fine copy, which is slightly cocked, in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which is complete and generally crisp with just a couple of trivial closed tears and some dustiness.

R.A. Bevan (1901-1974) was a member of the 1930s literary set and a particular friend of Anthony Powell. He became a significant figure in the advertising industry. R.D. Bloomfield writing his obituary in The Times described him as "the personification of the greatest days of English advertising". Whilst at S.H. Benson, he worked with Dorothy L Sayers who based the character of Mr Ingleby in Murder Must Advertise on him.
