POWELL, Anthony Venusberg

Duckworth, 1932.

First edition. Original grey 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], with the authors' warm regard, and in the hope that the new year will prove a good one from, Tony Powell. Dec 31st 1932. "I love little pussy, / her coat is so warm"". A near fine copy, in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which is complete with just a little wear to the head of the spine and corners.

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.
