1919, a first printing of the fifth volume in Dorothy M Richardson's Pilgrimage sequence
First edition, first printing. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with printed titling to spine and upper board. 19.5 × 12.5cm, 293pp.
This is volume 5 of Pilgrimage, Dorothy Richardson's sequence of 13 semi-autobiographical novels. It continues the story of Miriam Henderson's life: it introduces Mr. Mendizabble and other new and curious characters.
This book is part of a collection from Duckwroth's archive, and the library of Alice Thomas Ellis, the author, who was fiction editor at Duckworth, the publishing house run by her husband Colin Haycraft. (Provenance: Trevanion & Dean).
Good condition. The blue cloth binding is faded to the spine and boards' edge, and there is some fraying to the cloth at the head of the spine. The contents are in good, readable condition but with some tanning to the pages. As mentioned above, this was Duckworth's own copy and has "file" written across the title page.Sold
