A. R. Orage - A Memoir by Philip Mairet 1st ed

£30.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

“This memoir of A. R. Orage is a brief biography; recording at least in outline the whole story of his life, and especially of his brilliant editorship of the New Age weekly, by which his name is most widely known. The write has tried to do justice to Orage’s peculiar position in the recent history of letters and of political ideas. That position is significant, for the years preceding the Great War sae one of the most exuberant periods in English journalism, when Shaw, Wells, Chesterton, Beloc, and Bennett all contributed to the literary brilliance and political earnestness of the New Age; and later on, Orage’s powerful advocacy of Guild Socialism and of Douglas Social credit took effect upon public movements, this influence spreading beyond the borders of England.”

This book is the first edition, published in 1936 by J. M. Dent and Sons LTD. It has the original dust jacket in good condition for its age with only minor damage to the top and bottom of the spine and discolouration. The book has foxing to the first couple of pages and on the pages edges but otherwise pages are clean and unmarked with no damage or notations. Please see photos for more details.
