Hogarth Press, London, 1934,

A volume in the Biographies Through the Eyes of Contemporaries series. "It would seem that in early years Lamb was not watched and portrayed with the same eagerness as in his prime and his decline. He was at the outset the companion of men whose genius and purpose did not allow them much time for estimating him. He withdrew from direct literary ambition into his clerkship, occasionally contributing something to current poetical or critical action, but even then retiring with cheerful haste from the possibilities of become An Author, 'complete the box'. The eminence of Coleridge, Wordsworth, Southey, was not for him. Nevertheless, his personality and the original acuteness of his published and private opinions attracted to him, midway through his life, a great many friends who understood that he was worthy of their best discussion and careful chronicling." -from Blunden's preface. Faint soiling and edge-sunning to boards, splits to outer hinges, black mark to bottom edge, name to ffep, pouch remnant at rear, foxing to initial and final leaves, else good. As is. Scarce. 25.00

2 BLUNDEN, Edmund Cricket Country. First Edition.
Collins, London, 1944, 
BLUNDEN, Edmund. Cricket Country. London: Collins, 1944. First Printing. Pp. (4),5-224. 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Edmund Blunden, who has long won admiration with his short studies on the game of cricket, has been reluctant to attempt what has been termed 'a cricket book', and the present volume is not a cricket book in the ordinary meaning of the word. Its central scene is the cricket field, it has many reminiscences and reflections upon that scene and its actors and actions -- from the greatest to the least; but the writer's imagination ranges widely round the ground into a rich variety of things which have interested him, and the music of life wherein pastime and recreation and the unofficial hours play so importanta part. As the early years of the writer were passed where the glories and graces of cricket were almost as native to the place as the rivers and hil ls, that is the continual background; but it recedes in many passages of exploration of all sorts; and while the lover of cricket will find the chapters particularly devoted to the game worthy of his perusal, those who know little of it will be allured by the dream of life which is seen to include all such games and tourneyings." - from the dust jacket. Binding starting between pp. 16-17, previous owner's acquisition note inked to ffep, else verygood in nicked, hingeworn, unclipped dust jacket. 20.00
