First Thus. 22 X 14½ cm. VG/VG. Revised and expanded from the 1945 Pelican paperback original. Black cloth, gilt titles on front board & spine, [viii], 313 pp, footnotes, chapter bibliographies. Dent in middle of front board, rear board bumped near foot of spine. DJ chipped at head of spine and bottom of rear panel (without loss of text), closed tears to 3 cm; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "Many of the world's great thinkers have insisted that each human activity is closely bound up with every other. If they are right, our reading will not be the harmless and thoroughly independent pastime it may seem. It will have a great deal to do with what we are and what we become. That is the standpoint from which Mr. Belgion discusses novels, biographies, serious books, drama, and poetry in English. ." Shipping weight 2 lbs.

She completes her study with an account of White's use of historical material, and the relationship of 'The Once and Future King' to the 'Morte Darthur'."

Chesser, Eustace, b. 1902.  
Shelley & 'Zastrozzi': Self-Revelation of a Neurotic.

Publisher: Gregg/Archive, London [c March 1965].
A psychological analysis of Shelley through his first published work, a reprint of which is included. "When I first came across 'Zastrozzi' I was immediately struck by its resemblance to the dream material with which every psychoanalyst is familiar. ...The literary quality of 'Zastrozzi' is not, perhaps, very great, but the possible light it throws on Shelley's inmost personality is of enormous importance. ...The analysis I have made is not strictly Freudian. In the present state of psychological knowledge an eclectic approach is inevitable." 167 p., 22 cm.; color dj clipped, foxed; book clean inside & out; VG. 34431.
