Abstract:

Author's first draft and corrected galleys of Memories of an Edwardian and neo-Georgian, published by Martin Secker in 1937 and republished the following year as Memories of an Edwardian. A mixture of holograph and typescript leaves, extensively revised and corrected by the author, many leaves with manuscript or typed sections pasted on. An important and entertaining account of four decades of bohemian literary life, with recollections of Dowson, Machen, Frank Harris, Richard Middleton, Ford, T.S. Eliot, Pound, and many others. The textual differences between the manuscript and the published book become extensive from chapter 17 onwards. At chapter 20, the manuscript ends at what is the first paragraph of p. 263 of the published book, which carries on for a further 11 pages, including a closing chapter. The final sentence of the manuscript contains his last words on D.H. Lawrence: "Above all it should not be forgotten that he possessed to a pre-eminent degree the quality most necessary to a great literary success in England, the power of boring the humanist to tears."
