Sorrell and Son

£24.99

Product description

This novel, the best-known of the many written by the author, went through 39 editions in the 20 years after its first appearance in 1925. It clearly struck a chord in the inter-war period, and copies would have been much loved and often re-read.

George Warwick Deeping (1877–1950) was a prolific English novelist and short story writer, whose best-known novel was Sorrell and Son (1925).

Our copy, amazingly, still retains its dust-wrapper, albeit in a fragile condition, and with considerable loss. This is probably because it was pasted to the inside of the front cover with a gift label, and in the pocket thus created there remains a personal letter neatly folded. An ink-written gift inscription also adorns the front fep. The book itself is bound in light brown cloth with gilt lettering on the spine, and few signs of wear apart from minor fading here and there. Inside, the pages are all clean and clear, and the binding is firm. A nice copy for its age (1945).
