Faint spine and cover creases, light edgewear and rubbing. A nice copy. ; This is the third book about Angela Thirkell by the author, a past president of the Angela Thirkell Society, North American branch. This "is a close examination of each of the Barsetshire novels for elements of beauty (or lack thereof), supplemented by notation of the increasing presence of nostalgia in the oeuvre, and the link between the two. Aesthetics here refers to Thirkell's appreciation of beauty, especially in nature and architecture, rather than to the strict philosophical school of thought." ; Fun 'advance praise' on back cover featuring various Barsetshire notables. Images are actual copy on offer.

Brandons, The, THIRKELL, Angela
12 7241 THIRKELL, Angela Brandons, The
Hardcover Knopf: New York; 1939; Book Club Edition 358 pages Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
Nice tan cloth binding, browned areas on spine gutters, page edges age browned, as are pastedowns and endpapers (seen frequently in this edition), a spot on painted top edge, ink previous owner name and July 1939 on front free endpaper; interior pages clean, no binding problems. A nice copy. Lightly age browned dust wrapper, with sunned spine and edges (seen frequently with this edition) has faint soil and a bit of edgewear. ; The Brandons is considered by many Angela Thirkell fans to be among her finest. It is a book often recommended to those we wish to initiate into the joys of our beloved novelist. It is captivating. Where would we be without Mrs. Brandon and Noel Merton? They generate heated discussions.There is the camp that finds both dripping with charm and the camp that finds Mrs. Brandon a useless creature and Mr. Merton a cad. Readers usually are, though, unanimous in praise of Mrs. Thirkell's skill in capturing these leading characters. "Breakfast at Stories" is one of the best openings to any Angela Thirkell novel and "Bad News at Stories" is possibly the best chapter Angela Thirkell ever wrote, with every word and each step of story development perfectly right. Meticulous details add immensely to the charm of this novel. Highly recommended.; Image is actual copy on offer.

To the traditional concerns of the gentry is added a fierce displeasure with intrusions of the post-war government (the office of "Red Tape and Sealing Wax"), yet this new-found preoccupation does nothing to deter the onset of a happy ending for all concerned."
