Venusberg

POWELL, Anthony

INSCRIBED FOR EDITH SITWELL

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 Edith Sitwell "For Edith Sitwell, who was kind enough to express approval of a previous work, from the author, Tony Powell. Oct. 17th 1932" A very good copy, in a good dustwrapper which has chips to the spine ends and top corner.

A fine association copy. The previous year Sitwell had written of Powell's first novel, Afternoon Men, that "Mr Powell was by far the most amusing and incisive of ... the bright young people". Powell lost no time in presenting her with a copy of his second novel as this was inscribed at the time of publication.
