About this Item

8vo. 194pp. (2). Original blue-green illustrated dust jacket with wheel design, and black lettering on covers and spine. Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. Side and top edges of book uncut. "Printed in France" on copyright page, and "Chartes - Imprimerie Durand, Rue Fulbert (5-1929)" at rear. The publication is a collection of essays discussing and providing critical analysis of the then as of yet published Finnegans Wake, sections which had been appearing in literary journals since 1924, under the title of "Work in Progress". The essays were from a broad selection of writers and artists as well as literary scholars and critics - many of whom knew Joyce personally. The contributors include poet William Carlos Williams, and acclaimed playwright Samuel Beckett (in what was his first published work). In his essay "Dante. Bruno. Vico. Joyce", Beckett argues for the strong influence of Giambattista Vico's "Scienza Nuova" as it relates to language, on Joyce's work. In addition to the essays, there are two highly critical letters addressed to Joyce about the work, discussing it in a negative light. Dust jacket with some smudging, rubbing and light spotting. Head and tail of spine with some rubbing and minor chipping. Spine and corners of cover sunned. Jacket clipped at corners of interior flaps, but price is still present. Light smudging and sunning to boards, with head and tail of spine lightly rubbed. Interior with age toning to edges of pages. Ex-libris of Roger Senhouse pasted on at interior front cover. Dj in good-, binding in good, interior in good- condition. Roger Henry Pocklington Senhouse (1899 - 1970) was an English publisher and translator, and a member of the Bloomsbury Group of writers, intellectuals, and artists. Senhouse attended both Eton College and Oxford University, where he was friends with Michael Llewelyn Davies, one of the boys upon whom Peter Pan was based, and foster son of J. M. Barrie. In 1935, Senhouse became co-owner with Fredric Warburg of the publishing house which became Secker & Warburg, rescuing it from receivership. Bookseller Inventory # 41542
