About this Item

xxvi, 542 pp., illustrations. Light wear at edges of dust jacket. Warmly inscribed by Kay Dreyfus to Saul Novak, chairman, School of Music, Queens College and his wife. ''To give way to human feelings, to overflow & swim in human feelings, is human enough, but the farthest north of humanness is, for me, to be a lightning conductor of such feelings in such a way that they are particularly fitted to fill niches in coming men's minds & sit itchingly and inflamingly like small fishhooks in men's consciousness throughout changing customs and different rules for playing cricket.''--Grainger, 1907, in a letter to his mother.
