Book Description William Morrow & Company, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. Unstated (illustrator). Special Edition. Condition: Fair. The text of the book is in good condition with no marks, tears, or dog ears. The pages are age-browned, with stains on the endpapers especially near the hinges. There is previous owner¿s bookplate tipped in. The cloth cover of the book (front, spine, and back) has spots (silverfish?) and is discolored and faded. The spine of the book is faded and bumped (top and bottom). The four color illustrations are intact and unmarked. James Hilton (1900 -1954) was an English novelist remembered for several best-sellers, including Lost Horizon and Goodbye, Mr. Chips. Writing his novel LOST HORIZON in the early 1930s, the British author grasped humanity's brief opportunity to eradicate war as a solution to conflicts and replace it with rational dialogue between governments and dissolution of armies and weapons. Employing an armchair interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism, he created a protagonist, Hugh Conway, a British consul in the Far East, who is kidnapped and taken to Shangri-La high in the Himalayas, where he has long conversations with a high lama about the state of the world and the search for human fulfillment. Hilton is said to have been inspired by reading the National Geographic Magazine articles of a botanist-ethnologist exploring the southwestern Chinese provinces and Tibetan borderlands as well as articles and books by early travelers in Tibet. Three years after the first publication of LOST HORIZON, Hilton came out with the definitive author's edition, for which he wrote a new preface, in which he writes: LOST HORIZON was first published on both sides of the Atlantic in the autumn of 1933. Its sale was slow at first, and though it had a few fervent and even notable admirers, by Christmas of that year one might have prophesied that even the ripple it had stirred was already stilled. As this happens to ninety-nine percent of novels, I was not enormously surprised, though I was- dare I now say it- a little disappointed. But in June 1934 the story received the Hawthornden Prize, which is given yearly in England for an imaginative work written by a British author under the age of forty-one. The result was in the nature of a resurrection; the sale of the original English edition began to gather momentum, while in America the publishers took the almost unique step of issuing the book afresh. Such a second chance was well taken, for during the past two years seventeen editions have been printed. This, the eighteenth, makes a permanent one. There is certainly no book of mine whose success I ever desired more keenly, for LOST HORIZON was, in part, the expression of a mood for which I had always hoped to find sympathizers. I found them in thousands, and now, through the medium of the screen version that Frank Capra has made, the same mood, I hope, will find them in millions. Which leads me to a final remark about this mood. When Lost Horizon first appeared three years ago, its message of the peril of war to all that we mean by the word "civilization" was considered topical. "It will be such a storm as the world has not seen before. There will be no safety by arms, no help from authority, no answer in science. It will rage till every flower of culture is trampled, and all human things are leveled in a vast chaos. . . . The Dark Ages that are to come will cover the whole world in a single pall; there will be neither escape nor sanctuary, save such as are too secret to be found or too humble to be noticed. . ." How much happier one would be to dismiss all this as thoroughly out-of-date, than to admit, as one must, that in 1936 it has become more terrifyingly up-to-date than ever!. Seller Inventory # 000036
