About this Item

(Pasadena): The Ampersand Press (1948). Octavo, hardcover, black cloth with paper title label on front cover. 16 pages, with portrait frontispiece. Printed by Grant Dahlstrom at the Castle Press. Limitation unspecified. A very fine copy. A rather strident denunciation of the critics and literary people who have compared Jane Austen to Shakespeare and Homer. Aldington is prepared to praise her, but within respectable limits: ".In its own way it may be perfect, but with the perfection of a Tanagra statuette compared with a temple and a cathedral.".
