Hilaire Belloc: A Memoir

by MORTON, J. B

Condition: Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is in only fair condition with several small tears


Hollis & Carter, London: 1955. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is in only fair condition with several small tears. This is in no sense a biography but a personal memoir, "an attempt," as the author says, to recapture Belloc as a man rather than as a writer." It is, in fact, the record of a thirty years' friendship, from that first strange meeting in the early nineteen twenties, through long and close companionship, in Sussex and London, at sea and abroad. The result is a life-like prtrait of Belloc in all his brilliance and with all his endearing eccentricities.
