        In Parenthesis. Seinnyessit e gledyf ym penn mameu.

      8vo., original blue buckram , spine lettered on a grey backround within a gilt panel. With frontispiece and full page plate at the rear both by David Jones, and a map in the text. A fine copy. Second edition of this tour de force by the artist/poet, an innovative prose poem which stands as one of the handful of literary works of the First World War to which the term "great" may justifiably applied. Jones served in France and Flanders with the Royal Welch Fusiliers. This edition includes an Introduction by T. S. Eliot (Jones's advocate at Faber), and this is the deluxe issue, limited to seventy numbered copies (fifty for sale), specially bound and signed by Jones and Eliot. This copy No. 1. The author's first book and most celebrated work, which takes the form of an epic prose poem set in the first world war, based on the author's own experiences. It was ten years in the making and was eventually helped to publication by T.S. Eliot, who hailed the book as "a work of genius". It won the 1938 Hawthornden prize. Stephen Spender in a review for the NY Times said: "This work of a poet-painter has its every word chiselled out of experience, and it is probably the World War I monument most likely to survive."

(.) Si l'art, après quelques milliers d'années d'existence, et malgré les appels au néant que la mode la plus délétère lui prodigue, espère survivre en face du progrès, (.) qu'accomplissent les sciences et les techniques (.), il le devra à l'exemple permanent et à l'influence ravivée d'une poignée d'hommes comme Landowski."
