Strachey, Lytton
Published by Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, New York, U.S.A. (1928)
Used Hardcover First Edition Quantity Available: 1
REO Et Cetera
(Groton, NY, U.S.A.)

Book Description Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1928. Hardcover. Condition: Good Minus. National Portrait Gallery (Frontispiece of Queen Elizabeth; Sir Walter Raleigh, Francis Bacon); Duke of Bedford , Robert Devereux, Robert Cecil, Earl of Salisbury ) (illustrator). 1st Edition. A notable book because it came from the library of Robert Benchley (1889-1945), a well-known writer, critic, and film actor whose forte was deadpan, parody, absurdist, and surreal humor. Benchley edited the "Harvard Lampoon" as an undergraduate, and wrote for years for "Vanity Fair" and "The New Yorker" (where, as an early contributor, he influenced other writers soon to become famous, such as E. B. White and James Thurber). He was a founding member of the famous writer's circle that met at the Algonquin Round Table in New York City, along with friend Dorothy Parker and others. He won Best Short Subject for his short film "How to Sleep" at the 1935 Academy Awards, and appeared in many films, such as Alfred Hitchcock's "Foreign Correspondent" in 1940. He was a prolific writer and journalist, his career cut short at age 56 by cerebral hemhorrhage. Robert Benchley has neatly printed his name on the first free end paper, a departure from his usual written signature and autograph, although close comparison shows many similarities, leaving little doubt it is his handwriting. The book is unmarked and clean. There is a small paste-on bookseller's tag affixed to the inside rear board: Brentano's Booksellers and Stationers, New York. The only other markings are on the inside front board, listing bookseller's pricing and other information (also in pencil). The lettering on the boards and spine is nearly invisible. Black cloth is in good condition, the binding is tight and there is modest shelf wear on the corners. Bibliography, Index. 296 toned pages. Seller Inventory # 004333
