Syracuse University Press, (Syracuse, New York), 1963, Ist edition. 
372 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "This Anthology is tangible evidence that 'The Dial'...printed more original and influential work than any other journal in America or England.

Eliot (London), Ezra Pound (Paris), Jose Ortega y Gasset (Spain). D.H. Lawrence writes a book review, William Carlos Williams discusses Marianne Moore, Gilbert Seldes reviews 'The Great Gatsby', and Paul Claudel gives us 'A Glance at the Soul of Japan'. An unfinished version of Eliot's 'The Hollow Men' and an early version of Pound's 'Fifth Canto' are included and works of Derain, Picasso, Matisse, and other artists are reproduced in this collection. All of the departments of 'The Dial' are represented, and most of the material has not been reprinted elsewhere...

JACK SHADBOLT., Watson, Scott.  (Jack Shadbolt.)
142 Watson, Scott. (Jack Shadbolt.) JACK SHADBOLT.
Vancouver Douglas & McIntyre 1990 0888946139 / 9780888946133 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ Jack Shadbolt. 
243 pp, 12 1/2" H. "In this first full study of the renowned (Canadian) painter, Scott Watson explores Shadbolt's personal struggles to be an artist and to resolve conflicting drives - between spontaneity and restraint, order and chaos - in the context of shifting trends in art as well as social change. Shadbolt also struggled to be understood in a culture that, when he began, was not ready for modern art. From (his) early love of nature and awakening artistic sensibilities to his coming of age while studying in New York, London and Paris, Watson explores the evolution of an artist who has an international perspective but who is also a unique regional painter with a profound sense of place. In chronicling Shadbolt's development, the author has created a portait that gives an insightful look at the nature of the artistic sensibility, enriched with liberal excepts from the painter's own writings on art and the life of the artist. Lavishly illustrated with the art of Jack Shadbolt - 220 illustrations, including 110 in colour." Tiny dent on rear board and on fore-edge of front board, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has bery light rubbing.
