Arthur's

£150.00

Product description

Arthur's by A.Neil Lyons a collection of short stories , book one A.D 1901 and book two A.D.1904 all in this 1914 scarce reprint edition bublished by John Lane, the Bodley Head. The cloth covered boards show signs of wear to the head and tail of the spine, corners bumped and hinges rubbed. Several of the opening pages are tanned with moderate foxing, the hinge on the title page is cracked the full length. The interior pages are a little tanned at the outer edges otherwise clean textblock and a strong binding.

Lyons (1880-1940) was born in the South African town of Kimberley and was educated at Bedford Grammar School in nearby Hanover. He received accountancy and legal training but his interests quite rapidly shifted to journalism. He began writing articles on military topics and when he was nineteen succeeded in gaining a low level post at The Critic. Soon after this he emigrated to London and the 1901 census lists him as living at the Hampden Club, Hampden Street (now Polygon Road) near Kings Cross Station, which provided lodgings for young writers and journalists. While in London, Lyons frequently contributed to the weekly newspaper The Clarion and in 1910 he would write a biography of the socialist campaigner Robert Blatchford, who edited this publication. The aspiring author married Dorothy Worrall when he was 29, and was living with her in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire by 1911. He would later move to Wivelsfield, and write books that touched on the life of the Sussex working classes such as Moby Lane and There Abouts (1916).
