LUCY CHURCH AMIABLY.  A NOVEL OF ROMANTIC BEAUTY AND NATURE AND WHICH LOOKS LIKE AN ENGRAVING., Stein, Gertrude.

Author Name    Stein, Gertrude.

Title   LUCY CHURCH AMIABLY. A NOVEL OF ROMANTIC BEAUTY AND NATURE AND WHICH LOOKS LIKE AN ENGRAVING.

Publisher    Something Else Press, New York, 1969, first U.S. edition.

Seller ID   20235

240 pp, 8vo (8 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This is its first publication in an English-speaking country, and the small first edition, published in Paris in 1930, was never widely distributed in the United States....It was written in the su mmer of 1927, a very special year for avant-garde writing....Lucey itself is a small village in central France, located over the hill from where Miss Stein was staying, and over another hill from where the distinguished French playwright Pa u l C l a u d e l was staying, which explains the references to Claudel and to hills in the text....Nothing much happens in the book. It would be impossible to prepare an outline of the plot....The action is purely interior: a great deal is notice d, d i ge st ed , ab so rbed, compared. The result can therefore be taken on the one hand simply as an account of being in the countryside (at Bilignin), or on the other hand as an investigation into the interlocking nature of things and into the way s t ha t l ang uag e can be used for description...." Minor browning to edges of textblock, minor soiling, a few very tiny water marks on colored top of textblock. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, three tiny edge tear s wi th crea ses, lig ht bro wnin g - mainly on spine and flap-folds/top edge, moderate soiling. Very Good/Good
