THE CARRA EDITION OF THE COLLECTED WORKS OF GEORGE MOORE [21 VOLUMES CT]

By George Moore

N Y: Boni and Liveright, Inc.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1921-1924. Hardcover. Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Complete 21 volume set. Bound in light green paper-covered boards with vellum-backed spines [darkened], with paper title labels. Contents VG+ and often unopened. This set is a scarce autographed limited edition of the work of George Augustus Moore (February 24, 1852 - January 21, 1933) , an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Ã? Mile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. Volumes 2 - 19 are illustrated with tipped-in frontispiece photographs, many of which are portraits of Moore himself. This is number 40 of 1000 numbered sets. Antique bookplates of a woman crushing serpents beneath her feet can be seen on the pastedown endpapers. 6 x 9". ; Signed by Author .
