About this Item

First Printing of Bromfield's eighth novel (Bromfield won the 1927 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, for "Early Autumn"). Thick 8vo: [8],463,[1]pp. Publisher's textured vivid orange cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in blue, top edge stained orange, fore-edge untrimmed, yellow patterned end papers; illustrated dust jacket priced $2.50. About Fine (spine ends bumped, slight shelf wear, top stain faded); Near Fine or better jacket (spine panel lightly toned with ends rubbed, almost unnoticeable closed tear to front panel's lower right edge). Withal, an excellent copy, hardly ever encountered in such condition. First published serially under the title Shattered Glass. Basis for the 1931 film titled "24 Hours" and starring Clive Brook, Kay Francis, and Miriam Hopkins. "Louis Bromfield was a Midwestern-American writer and farmer whose wide-ranging career, straddling the literary, the commercial, and the agricultural, spanned over four decades from 1920-1956. . . . Twenty-Four Hours shifted from his earlier style [influenced by such epic, Victorian authors as Dickens, Thackeray, and Galsworthy] by fusing Victorian, middlebrow, and modernist themes and techniques. . . . Bromfield's reputation as a literary author was largely overlooked. He was remembered, instead, for his nature/agricultural writing and experimental farming at Malabar. . . . In recent years, however, critical interest has started to address this imbalance . . . Perhaps, in light of this new interest, Bromfield's literary and cultural significance in twentieth century American literary history will begin to emerge." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.
