First Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Author. Shaw, George Bernard. HEARTBREAK HOUSE. Great Catherine And Playlets Of The War. Inscribed. London: Constable and Company, 1919. "You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race." First Edition. Small 8vo. 266 pp. + 2 pp. of adverts. A near fine copy in light moss green cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a bright, fresh example of the dustwrapper. Custom TBCL embossed cloth slipcase in fine condition. A significant presentation copy inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title: "To Robert Loraine / from Bernard Shaw. / 10th October 1919". Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaws & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. Excellent example. Laurence A149b.
