Deeping, Warwick  
SORRELL AND SON
 Picture
Publisher: Grosset & Dunlap, NY`, 1926.
Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. 1. Hard Cover Publisher's full olive cloth, gilt (green) lettering on spine and cover. 8vo. 400, (8) pp. Former owner's name and address on fep, gutters cracked, spine mildly sunned. GOOD. "Sorrell and Son, the thirty-third of Warwick Deeping's sixty-eight novels, became and remained a bestseller from its first publication in 1925 throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Translated into thirteen languages, running to forty-one editions and filmed twice, 1927 and 1933, the novel achieved what Ross McKibbin calls “a talismanic status” for its admirers. Dedicated to Deeping's own father, this “rapturous wish-fulfilling dream of perfect filial love”, as Kingsley Amis describes it, retains its pathos, as demonstrated by its successful adaptation for YTV in 1983. Sorrell and Son effectively engaged anxieties, widespread amongst the growing middle classes between the wars, about the direction of social change, particularly the shifting constructions of class and gender." - The Literary Dictionary. George Warwick Deeping (1877 - 1950) was a prolific English novelist and short story writer. His most famous novel is Sorrell and Son (1925). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

Publisher: G. P. Putnam & Co. New York 1855.
First Edition Very good in the publisher's original blind stamped, green cloth covered boards with faded gilt text stamping on the spine and a gilt stamped sketch on the front board and with light yellow end sheets. The back strip has a 1" long closed tear to the cloth in a horizontal direction which has been professionally repaired. There is considerable wear and rubbing to the cloth at the head and heel of the spine with the cloth worn through at the head of the spine. There is a early prior owner's book plate on the front paste down and the rear hinge is cracked and separated. The rear hinge has been professionally repaired. 383 pages of text followed by 12 pages of ads from the publisher. Illustrated with a double frontispiece. A collection of 32 short stories or articles all of which previously appeared in periodicals or books. (Langeld/Blackburn, p. 44; BAL 10188) While the publisher's ads at the rear of the text are dated "Feb'y ., 1855" this may be a third printing as the publisher's address reads "10 Park Place" while the first and second printings show an address of "12 Park Place". It was in the short story, "The Creole Village" that Irving again coined a new phrase for the American public. It was the first use of the term "the almighty dollar".

The author's first book and the debut of Chief Inspector Wexford. Books in the attic with a mysterious inscription -- how does that play into the murder of the wife. Bookplate, apparently of a member of the club, Friends of American Writers, along with an early 1965 date, on the front endpaper. The book is otherwise clean, bright and sound inside. The covers have minor extremity wear. The jacket is complete but for a tiny chip at the foot of the spine; the edge wear and surface rubbing is modest generally but a bit more serious at the head of the spine. There is a one-inch tear at the bottom front spine fold. At the top rear panel, there is a complex two-sided tear with the material inside wrinkled like an accordion and short tears radiating from the bottom of that tear.
