1 Blunt, Wilfrid Scawen My Diaries. Being a Personal Narrative of Events 1888-1914
New York Knopf 1932 First Thus Hardcover Very Good Minus Very Good Minus 
New York: Knopf, 1932. Blunt, (1840-1922), a poet, diplomat, and horse breeder, was strongly opposed to British imperialism and sympathetic to Irish Home Rule. In 1888 a violent incident led to his imprisonment in Kilmainham Gaol. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of the First Edition Thus. Not common. The "Diaries" were first published in 1932. A publisher's note states this to be "a full and complete reprint of the much sought after London edition of 1919-1920." The CP refers to it as the "One Volume Edition ," and it includes a new Preface written by Augusta, Lady Gregory. Blue cloth binding, with black lettering on the spine. Clean text; 898 pages (indexed). Mildly bumped, and some light wear at the corners. This is a solid volume, but there are spots on the covers that suggest some solvent having splattered them at some time in the past. The bright orange and green dustjacket is complete, but has some edgewear and chipping; the spine has faded to a brown colour. In an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Thus. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/Very Good Minus. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
