Greene, Graham
Graham Greene First Edition Collection.
London: The Bodley Head, 1969 - 1985. A fine collection of eight first editions of Graham Greene novels and essay collections. Octavo, original cloth. The collection includes: Collected Essays (1969), A Sort of Life (1971), The Honorary Consul (1973), The Human Factor (1978), Ways of Escape (1980), Doctor Fischer of Geneva of The Bomb Party (1980), Monsignor Quixote (1982), and The Tenth Man (1985). Each volume is fine in a near fine to fine dust jacket. Regarded by many as one of the leading English novelists of the 20th century, Graham Greene published over 25 novels throughout the course of his writing career which spanned nearly 67 years. Although he objected to being described as a Catholic writer, Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of Greene's writing, especially in four of his best-known novels: Brighton Rock (1938), The Power and the Glory (1940), The Heart of the Matter (1948), and The End of the Affair (1951); which have been named "the gold standard" of the Catholic novel. Greene's reputation as a writer was cemented not only by the great Catholic novels, but by his thrillers (or "entertainments" as he termed them), with plots involving the intrigues of international politics and espionage.
