Author Name    Fuller, Henry B.

Title   GARDENS OF THIS WORLD.

Publisher    Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1929, Ist edition, no. 1442 of an edition limited to 2000 copies.

Seller ID   13645

225 pp, small 8vo (7 11/16" H), hard cover - no dust jacket. No. 1442 of an limited edition of 2000 copies. "Henry Blake Fuller died on July 28, 1929, just on the eve of this book's publication. It seems almost foregone that he will take his place among those many artists to whom recognition comes too late. The man who wrote such miniature masterpieces as 'The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani' and 'The Last Refuge' (which Carl Van Vechten has called a forerunner of 'South Wind') is unknown to the world at large. Only a few discerning critics are aware that from his pen came an unparalleled series of novels about Chicago (although this particular one has a European locale); that this quient man was possessed of one of the finest talents that America has known..." Pages and endpapers browning lightly, book slightly cracked at pages 116/117, edges of textblock browned, minor edge wear to boards, light fading to areas of boards and spine, tiny tear at top of spine, very light rubbing and soiling. Good
