Conversations in Ebury Street. [With an interesting full-page manuscript letter by George Moore, written in ink into the book verso titlepage].
New York, Boni and Liveright, Inc. 1924 - Sprache: English Second edition. 14.5 x 21.5cm. 315 pages. Original hardcover with spine label. Deckled edges. With a fantastic, full-page, signed message written inside the book by George Moore. Very good - condition of the binding with signs of external wear (some spotting). Moore responds in his manuscript note on the halftitle possibly to the request of Frieda Lawrence, wife of D.H.Lawrence, who requested a copy of Moore's book "The Pastoral Loves of Daphnis and Chloe". Moore sent her instead this edition. George Moore (1852 - 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family who lived at Moore Hall in Carra, County Mayo. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. George Moore's family had lived in Moore Hall, near Lough Carra, County Mayo for almost a century. The house was built by his paternal great-grandfather-also called George Moore-who had made his fortune as a wine merchant in Alicante. The novelist's grandfather was a friend of Maria Edgeworth, and author of An Historical Memoir of the French Revolution. Ebury Street in Belgravia was where Moore lived when he was in London. This copy of "Conversations in Ebury Street" contains a full-page, signed message written inside the book by George Moore. Moore responds in his manuscript note to the request of a Mrs. Lawrence (possibly Frieda Lawrence, wife of D.H.Lawrence), who requested a copy of Moore's book The Pastoral Loves of Daphnis and Chloe. Moore sent her instead this edition.
