About This Item

New York, NY: Dodd, Mead, 1907. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Fred Taylor. First American edition. Rich ribbed oxblood cloth, with 2- color vignette on front board. Spine is dulled and worn at head and heel, else good. Tiny chip at edge. Front board illustration is very lightly chipped on one side. 16 full page illustrations. Frontispiece has tanned the title page. No dust jacket. No former owner marks. The book is about literary and artistic London in the 1900s, and the area of London covered is Chelsea, Soho, and Hampstead. It is a long discourse and a guide to Bohemian London in the early twentieth century, between the eras of Enoch Soames and Ezra Pound. At 22 Ransome had moved to London, and while living in Chelsea was solicited by a young woman literary agent to write "a book on Bohemia in London, an essayistic al sort of book, putting Bohemia of today against a background of the past", which he promptly did. It was published by Chapman and Hall in late September 1907 and put out by Dodd Mead in NY. An absolutely charmed cultural period piece.
