The Green Child.

READ, HERBERT.

London: William Heinemann Ltd, [1935]. FIRST EDITION. A fine copy in a very good to near fine dust jacket with a long, but completely closed, three inch tear in lower left-hand portion of front panel. Despite the tear, an attractive copy of this book, with no paper loss. A nice copy of this strange novel, and highly uncommon thus.

The Green Child

READ HERBERT

London: Heinemann, 1935. PROOF COPY. A softcover. Publisher's ochre-coloured wrappers. No D/W. The proof is in VG condition with foxing to the early/late pages of the book, creasing to the spine (as always) a strip of tape residue to the front cover. A rare and rather strange early novel by Herbert Read which presumably must be very rare as a proof. The author's only novel.

Read, Herbert, introduction by Kenneth Rexroth

NY: New Directions. VG PB. nd. 3rd ptg. "The sheer perfection of the writing is very rare in English since the loosening of standards in Nineteenth Century fiction." . ....reality is again entrance and translucent with the light of a natural glory behind it...what is more remarkable....one gradually comes to realize that it is about this state of being as such that Read is writing. Read's only novel, a utopian one, a unique blend of reality and fantasy which moves from the English countryside to the South Aerican pampas and then to a mysterious and eternal underground land of caves. .
