Revelation. Translated by Una Lady Troubridge.
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1930 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in green. With the dust jacket. Publisher's file copy, with their pencilled mark to front panel of jacket. A little foxing to edges, an excellent copy in the jacket with a couple of shallow chips to extremities. First published in Paris under the title La Débauche in 1924, it is considered to be the first novel about a homosexual man from the mother's point of view. The translator Una Troubridge was the lover of Marguerite Radclyffe Hall. Provenance: from the publisher's archive of Victor Gollancz (1893–1967), one of the revolutionary figures of 20th-century publishing. Everything about Gollancz was distinctive, from his business practices – he flouted convention, backed newcomers extravagantly, and held unique sway over the Book Society choices – to the appearance of his books. The famous yellow jackets, a collaborative design between Gollancz himself and the typographer Stanley Morison, bristle with blurbs, recommendations, and reviews in black and magenta. Prior to its acquisition by Peter Harrington, the archive was shelved together from first publication, though occasionally moved from warehouse to warehouse over the decades. The copies were retained by Gollancz as "archive" or "file" copies and most are stamped in ink with rubber stamps, usually on the front panel of the dust jacket, the front free endpaper, and the title page.
