LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

New York: Random House, 1988. Publishers original grey boards with silver lettering to front cover, with silver lettering to black cloth spine. Dustwrapper: unclipped, minor crease to inside front flap, now protected in Brodart. Illustrated endpapers, no inscriptions. 486pp. including index, plus 32pp b/w photographs. Pages clean and bright in firm binding. In this volume, the author takes Shaw from his birth in 1856, through a series of poignant and tantalizing love affairs, to his marriage in 1898. Following his mother to London, he attempted to set himself up as a professional man of genius. He tried his hand at novels; elected himself a leading member of the Fabian Society; established a reputation, with his championship of Wagner, as a brilliant music critic; and composed his famous 'pleasant' and unpleasant' plays. In a crowded social life he collaborated with Sydney and Beatrice Webb, played amorous piano duets with Anne Besant, spent evenings with May Morris and Eleanor Marx, and contributed to the newspapers of Frank Harris. Two strands in his character, love and power, competed over his affection for Ellen Terry and his struggle with Henry Irving.. First US Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo.
