The incomparable Max: a collection of writings of Sir Max Beerbohm

Dodd, Mead & Company, January 1962. Cloth. Used - Very Good / Very Good. Item #237241
ISBN: B0007DLNHY



In clipped dustjacket with rubbing and darkening to spine & margins. Rust color cloth covered boards with black lettering & silver decorative swirls. Tanning to end pages. Darkened textblock edges. Sound binding. Excerpts from eleven different Beerbohm published titles, including: Mainly on the Air, And Even Now, Seven Men, A Christmas Garland, Around Theatres, A Variety of Things and more. All of what is here is but a small taste of the wonderful mad world of Max. During his life he published over two dozen books, and only one novel, Zuleika Dobson; or, An Oxford Love Story which I think brilliant. It is very funny, very dark and I cannot decide if it is horribly misogynistic or perhaps just the opposite? 'Death cancels all engagements' indeed. (395 pp.)
