The Sandcastle
London Chatto & Windus 1957 First Impression of the author's uncommon third book. Publisher's forest green cloth, spine stamped in gilt; illustrated dust jacket, priced 15s, by Charles Mozley. About Fine (dust-soiled top edge, spine tips lightly bumped); about Fine jacket (spine panel mildly toned). Fine- The quiet life of schoolmaster Bill Mor and his wife, Nan, is disturbed when a young woman, Rain Carter, arrives at the school to paint the headmaster's portrait. "Visual art was of great importance to Murdoch and is a dominant strand in the novels, as well as being an idiosyncratic element in her moral philosophy. (Murdoch sees the creation of, and attention to, good art as a moral issue.) She thought that she might have been an art historian or a painter had it not been for the war, and her novels frequently feature painters as major characters, as, for example, in The Sandcastle." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.
