About this Item

Slim folio, pp. [2], 3-54, [2]; 12 plates (some in color) by Rockwell Kent, William Nicholson, Derwent Wood, John Nash, and others; original pictorial boards; edges worn, rebacked and recased with new endpapers, modern bookplate; internally fine. Printed letterpress by Gerald T. Meynell. With a starry list of contributors, including both prose and poems from Maurice Baring, Max Beerbohm, Edmund Blunden, Walter De La Mere, John Freeman, Robert Graves, Vachel Lindsay, Siegfried Sassoon, H. M. Tomlinson, and others. Three issues only were published under the nominal editorship of Robert Graves: 2 appeared in 1919, and a last in 1923. "Published during an era when the best-remembered literary magazines were decidedly experimental and political in tone, Robert Graves's short-lived quarterly The Owl is notable for its purposeful conservatism. As the foreword to the first issue affirms, 'The Owl has no politics, leads no new movement and is not even the organ of any particular generation.' In keeping with this policy, Graves rejected more radical literary figures and featured an impressive group of established writers, including Thomas Hardy, W. H. Davies, John Galsworthy, and Walter de la Mare. As a traditional miscellany, The Owl also provided a forum for artists like Pamela Bianco, whose vibrantly colored drawings are featured in each issue, and for younger writers like John Crowe Ransom, Siegfried Sassoon, and Graves himself. It offers an important counterpoint to the more ideologically driven magazines favored by Eliot and Pound." -- Modernist Journals Project. Bookseller Inventory # 45106
