What's Become of Waring?

POWELL, Anthony

POWELL, Anthony What's Become of Waring?

Cassell, 1939.

First edition. Original russet cloth with blue titles to spine. Inscribed by the author (partially erased) to his aunt on the front endpaper, "For Aunt Kitten with love from Tony". Also with Powell's own bookplate to the front endpaper. A very good copy indeed, slightly cocked with a little wear to the extremities.

Powell's fifth and final pre war novel, it is the first not published by Duckworth, Powell's first employer and publisher. It marks a significant step in Powell's development, anticipating his post war masterpiece, A Dance to the Music of Time, with the introduction of the self-effacing first-person narrator.
The presence of Powell's bookplate, suggests that the book either never reached its intended recipient or that it was returned to him.

PROVENANCE: Anthony Powell (bookplate to front pastedown); purchased from the author's estate.
