First American edition. Ink name & date on front endpaper, jacket edges rubbed with 1 inch chip from spine head, minor loss from corners and rear joint, two tears, jacket spine faded. Good. 1928 Hard Cover. 294 pp. 8vo. Black cloth, paper spine label, silk decorative endpapers. Author's first novel, which followed on the success of two short story collections (Encounters; Ann Lee's and Other Stories). Bowen was a well-known author and member of literary society, befriending a number of the Bloomsbury Group, and also carrying on affairs with several other authors, including May Sarton. From the jacket: 'Tragedy and humor in a hotel on the Riveria [sic]. Wit and observation. A girl and an older woman, and the third member of an unusual triangle, a clergyman.' Endorsements by Rose Macaulay and Christopher Morley on jacket. From the publisher: 'These were the balmy days of the 1920s. The English, liberated from one long war and not yet faced with the next had - at least when well-off- a confident kind of vitality. The Hotel was a comfortable hotel on the Italian Riviera, run for prosperous English visitors. It was a closed world of wealth and a setting for the inexhaustible comedy of casual personal relationships among a variety of 'nice' people, all English, all wittily reflected with characteristic vivacity. Elizabeth Bowen's wit, and her exact eye for social detail has often been compared to that of Jane Austen, and the similarity is perfectly captured in this, Elizabeth Bowen's first novel.'
