Book Description: Macmillan, London, 1941. First editions. Octavo, 2 volumes. Original green cloth with titles to the spine in gilt. Some usual offsetting to the endpapers to both volumes in very good to near fine dust jackets that show some toning to the spine. Volume One is inscribed and dated in 1965 by the author, volume two is signed and dated in 1965. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Part travelogue, part history, part love letter on a thousand-page scale, Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon is a genre-bending masterwork written in elegant prose. But what makes it so unlikely to be confused with any other book of history, politics, or culture--with, in fact, any other book--is its unashamed depth of feeling: think The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire crossed with Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. West visited Yugoslavia for the first time in 1936. What she saw there affected her so much that she had to return--partly, she writes, because it most resembled "the country I have always seen between sleeping and waking," and partly because "it was like picking up a strand of wool that would lead me out of a labyrinth in which, to my surprise, I had found myself immured." Black Lamb is the chronicle of her travels, but above all it is West following that strand of wool: through countless historical digressions; through winding narratives of battles, slavery, and assassinations; through Shakespeare and Augustine and into the very heart of human frailty. "A masterpiece . . . as astonishing in its range, in the subtlety and power of its judgment, as it is brilliant in expression" (The Times, London). Bookseller Inventory # 1495

Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Includes for example the following chapters: Croatia, Dalmatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Old Serbia, Index Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia is a travel book written by Dame Rebecca West, published in 1941. The book is of exceptional length. It gives an account of Balkan history and ethnography and the significance of Nazism structured about West's six week trip to Yugoslavia in 1937. West's objective was "to show the past side by side with the present it created". Publication of the book coincided with the Nazi Invasion of Yugoslavia, and Rebecca West added a foreword highly praising the Yugoslavs for their brave defiance of Germany. The book's epigraph reads: "To my friends in Yugoslavia, who are now all dead or enslaved". The character of "Constantine" is supposedly based on Stanislav Vinaver. Anica Savic' Rebac, under the name of Milica appears not only as a new friend, but also as the intellectual guide who eventually reveals to Rebecca West the rituals which would lead the author to the clue metaphor of her vision of the Balkans. It made the Random House Modern Library list of the best 100 non-fiction books of the 20th century. American writer Larry McMurtry says in an essay, ".there are only a few great travel books. Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon is one.".(Wikipedia) Sprache: English Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Original Hardcover. Green cloth covered boards.
