The White Monkey
By John Galsworthy
1924 - London - William Heinemann
7.5" by 5"; (viii) 325pp.
A first edition of this novel from the author of The Forsyte Saga, John Galsworthy.
Although sympathetic to his characters, Galsworthy highlights their insular, snobbish, and acquisitive attitudes and their suffocating moral codes. He is viewed as one of the first writers of the Edwardian era who challenged some of the ideals of society depicted in the preceding literature of Victorian England. The depiction of a woman in an unhappy marriage furnishes another recurring theme in his work.
In a green cloth binding with unclipped dustwrapper. Externally smart, with just some bumping to the head and tail of the spine. Dustwrapper has some chipping and a couple of closed tears, with some handling marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with just some scattered light spotting. Overall: VERY GOOD with a VERY GOOD dustwrapper.
