Good-Bye to All That. An Autobiography. Robert GRAVES.

Good-Bye to All That. An Autobiography.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1929. [Great War Memoirs] FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.448. Including the Sassoon poem to pp.341-43, and no deletions to p.290. Sewn and bound with tapes, endpapers, and glue to spine, but no binding. Possibly a proof or advance copy, printed on thinner paper than the hard-bound first edition. Covered with navy cloth jacket, and presented in a light blue cloth-covered clamshell box. Well-thumbed, with toning to edges and endpapers, but otherwise quite clean. Some wear to clamshell. Very good. The classic literary war memoirs. Graves opens as a latter-day Marcus Aurelius, and welds the testament of a soldier-poet which reads like a mash-up between Hemingway's 'Farewell to Arms', and John Irving's 'The World According to Garp.'.
