About this Item

First edition. Like his earlier artists' studies, this one is published in the "Popular Library of Art" series (later printing copies are in the "Masters of Painting" series). INSCRIBED, "For George Keating / Ford Madox Ford," most likely in the 1930's. After Ford's heart attack in 1931 left him broke, Keating offered to pay his way to New York and acted as an advisor on which publishers he should approach. Keating, an executive in a paper company, eventually amassed a large collection of Conradiana, which he donated to Yale University. In a 1973 letter to Thomas Moser regarding, among other things, the Arthur Mizener biography of Ford, THE SADDEST STORY, Keating wrote, "I found [it] very interesting but wondered a bit about his facts. For instance, the references he made to me (several times) were not entirely correct. During the last few years I had quite a lot to do with Ford and I am happy to say that I feel I did not let the old man down." Original red cloth with gilt lettering and design on spine and front cover and TEG. Mild damp staining to and along spine, otherwise only minor wear and would be very good. Harvey A23 calls for brown boards, making this a variant in a nicer binding. Bookseller Inventory # 53788
