        Memorial, The [First State]

      Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 52 Tavistock Square, London 1932 - First Impression ('First Published 1932' on copyright page), one of only 1,222 copies. Publisher's first-state pale pink linen lettered in blue, brown top edge; in mid-brown illustrated dust jacket (designed by Jack Banting), printed in blue and priced 7/6. Just about Fine (front hinge very slightly cracked, end papers lightly spotted), in a pristine jacket. Woolmer 294. According to the Literary Encyclopedia, the death of Isherwood’s father in the First World War and the deep, lifelong mourning into which his mother fell provide much of the background for the family dynamics of Isherwood's early novels, including The Memorial, in which Cambridge student Eric Vernon finds himself torn between a desire to emulate his heroic father and his envy for his father’s great friend Edward Blake, who survived the war only to throw himself into gay life in Berlin and the pursuit of meaningless relationships. The story is imbued with Freudian family analysis, centering on the conflict between mother and son, and rebellion against the stifling English class society (Isherwood was born onto a withering branch of a distinguished family tree that had roots in Cheshire extending back to the Civil War). In his early career Isherwood adopted the high-Modernist style of the preceding generation of English novelists, particularly Virginia Woolf (whose Hogarth Press brought out The Memorial) and D. H. Lawrence. While breaking no new stylistic ground, Isherwood was experimenting with the novel form, recombining the chapters of The Memorial into a non-sequential chronology.

        The Syllabus of a Novel to be Called Anthony Adverse Plus ALS to Noted Book Collector

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1932 - #619/1000 copies printed " for presentation to friends of the author and the publishers". SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on verso of front wrapper "Autograph for Eugene L. Delafield, Esq. by Hervey Allen". Delafield was a noted New York book collector (1907-2001), the bulk of whose collection now resides in the Yale Collection of American Literature at the Beinecke Library. Laid in is a 1 page letter, signed with the initials "H.A." that reads- "One of the few remaining copies of my first book- newspaper reviews(?) with the exception of the "Weakling" which was printed in El Paso and sold to the troops along the Mexican Border in 1916. As you remember, I told you, I destroyed perhaps foolishly a few copies that remained in my possession and have been able to get ahold of only one or two since then that turned up in an old trunk. I am not anxious to have this book known as it contains verse written when I was very immature." On the back of this letter, in a different hand (presumably Delafield's) is "written circa 1925". Indeed, very few copies of Allen's 1st book survive today, and after a promising start as a poet, Allen turned to fiction and became best known for his novel "Anthony Adverse", which became a huge best-seller and was made into a memorable movie, winning 4 Oscars.
