BOOK INFO -

Sea and Sardinia and Selections from Twilight in Italy by D.H. Lawrence.

A Doubleday Anchor Book, published in 1954.

Design by Joseph P. Ascherl

Softcover.

SIZE -

277 pages / 4.25 x 7.1 x .6 inches / 10.75 x 18 x 1.5 inches

CONDITION -

Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like (& ignore the blue-tinted photos - I need to retake those sometime soon), but...

The cover has faded and discolored a bit with age. Some light creasing and wear around the edges / on the spine.

The book smells as though it has been stored with potpourri or something of the stort. Hey - it's better than a moldy book smell, right?

ON THE BACK COVER -

D.H. Lawrence's importance to twentieth-century literature extends well beyond his achievement as a novelist: his fiery moral vision, his fierce puritanic character, his vigorous devotion to the natural man defined a character in many ways more intense than those he created in his fiction. In Sea and Sardinia, the most penetrating of his travel books, this character reveals itself in autobiographical terms against a background of the stony island of Sardinia, its hard and independent people, its little inns, the unique costumes and character of each village, which come to sharp and vivid life through Lawrence's remarkable prose. And along with the people of Sardinia, we come to know Lawrence himself, the passion of his moral sense and the richness of his literary imagination.

This volume also includes three long, self-contained essays from a less well-known book, Twilight in Italy, and these provide a wonderful picture of the very different people--gentry, townspeople, peasants, and their wives--who live on Lake Garda in northern Italy.
