267pp Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/4") bound in original publisher's grey cloth with blue lettering to spine in original jacket.. In the B Traven collected works series. First British edition.Like American authors Thomas Pynchon and J. D. Salinger, the reclusive Traven delighted in his personal anonymity and refused to grant interviews. Little is known about him; it is not even clear whether he was a native German or merely wrote in the language. It is clear from the descriptions in his novels that he lived and travelled extensively in Europe, the United States and Mexico. On the basis of their writing styles, it has been suggested that Traven was a pseudonym for the German anarchist Ret Marut, who published an underground magazine in the last years of the Weimar Republic. Another identity for Traven may have been "Traven's agent", the seemingly English Hal Croves who worked with director John Huston while he was shooting The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. In interviews about the movie, Humphrey Bogart's wife, Lauren Bacall, reported Huston had told her during filming that Croves was Traven, but Huston's wife at the time, Evelyn Keyes, later said Huston was skeptical of Croves. A dispute over a reduction in Croves' wages for his work on the film may have clouded the issue. Traven's widow, Rosa Elena Lujàn, supported speculations about both pseudonyms in an interview published in 1990 in The New York Times. The Times reporter notes that the irrelevance of formal identity is a central theme of The Death Ship. Traven's widow said that Traven had something like ten identities and "loved to tangle things up." The story notes that the identity of "Ret Marut" can be traced back to 1907, and that neither Traven's widow nor anyone else really knows who he was before that. Most evidence points to Traven as German, but wild conjectures have been made as to his parentage. Some have suggested he might be the illegitimate son of Kaiser Wilhelm II, or Otto Feige, son of a German pottery worker from Schwiebus, Prussia. [1] The Encyclopædia Britannica states that he may have been born Berick Traven Torsvan in Chicago and that he grew up in Germany before settling in Mexico. The Penguin Encyclopedia, on the other hand, holds that he was born Albert Otto Max Frege in either Chicago or Poland. A biographical graphic novel on the life of Arthur Cravan has been published by Dark Horse Comics. Written by the publisher, Mike Richardson, and illustrated by Rick Geary, "Cravan" puts forth the idea that Cravan and Traven might be one and the same. Arthur Cravan was a Dadaist, a pugilist, and an all around larger-than-life personality who disappeared somewhere in Mexico around 1920. Cravan, like Traven, employed dozens of pseudonyms out of necessity or preference.WikipediaCondition:Jacket price clipped, spine ends and corners lightly chipped and rubbed, else very good in a like jacket., Jonathan Cape, 1940, Hordern House, 2003-01-01. 1st.

London: [n.p.], Printed in the Year MDCCLXIX [1769]. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good +. Three titles bound in one, all issued (no printer or publisher given) in 1769, complete in five volumes, continuously paginated in Arabic and Roman numerals. 12mo: 150,[3],cliv-clxvi,[1],168-306pp. "Yorick’s sentimental journey, continued . . . By Eugenius" (i.e., John Hall-Stevenson) comprises vols. III (which also includes "Some account of the life and writings of Mr. Sterne by Eugenius") and IV; vol. V is "A political romance, addressed to - - Esq. of York, Sterne's satire on ecclesiastical disputes at York, originally published in 1759 but suppressed. Each volume with separate title page. Nicely rebound in quarter calf, spine in six compartments stamped in blind and numbered in gilt, red leather lettering piece gilt, marbled paper-covered boards, end papers renewed. Contents lightly foxed and browned, some light page-creasing throughout. ESTC Citation No. T14751. For first edition, see: Rothschild 1971. Tinker Library 1978. Cross (Sterne), p. 603-04. Grolier English 100, 54. Sterling 808. Lowndes 2509. Pine-Coffin R788 (noting: "a mostly imaginative work, is unfinished and contains little reference to Italy. Eugenis is also unconnected with Italy."). Scarce early edition, appearing one year after the first. "The real journey immortalized in the story was made in October, 1765; in December, 1767, two volumes were completed, and on February 27, the work was published . . . On the eighteenth of March, Sterne died," at age 54 of tuberculosis. Sterne had used the pseudonym Yorick twice before (in Tristram Shandy and in Sermons by Mr. Yorick), "so the authorship of this book was probably never in doubt." (Grolier English 100) "Sterne’s wry and poignant farewell to the world. . . . Having produced a ribald and parodic account of the increasingly popular Grand Tour narrative as volume VII of Tristram Shandy, Sterne now conceived of a different kind of travel book, 'something new, quite out of the beaten track,' as he wrote to his daughter . . .' Contemporaries reviewed A Sentimental Journey as a travel narrative, rather than a novel, and admired the games which Sterne played with the conventions of the genre." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.
