Thomas Hardy, Novelist or Poet?
Large quarto. original blue cloth spine over blue boards, printed paper labels, in publisher's blue box with printed label (spine of box a little sunned, else fine). Illustrated with frontispiece portrait after Augustus John. One of 950 copies, inscribed by the author. "Will Thomas Hardy live as a novelist or a poet, or both, or neither; who shall say? That he has achieved the immortality of the Abbey is certain, but Henry Francis Cary occupies an honored place in the Poet's Corner next to Dr. Johnson, and not one person in ten today remembers who he was; while William Blake, whom we now recognize as a great poet and one of the greatest artists that England has ever produced, lies in a grave in Bunhill Fields, in a grave that remained unmarked for a century; . So contemporary appraisement is not always final." -from the book. Bookseller Inventory # 32729
