London; (1930): Faber and Faber Limited. First Edition. Octavo. 306pp. illustrated. While there have been several books written about Whistler, including the most noteworthy by the Pennells. The present volume is a study of the complex and fascinating personality of a man who was also a distinguished artist. Many could not capture his personality so, the author makes an attempt to present him (like one of his own pictures) bathed in the appropriate atmosphere and the proper distance inside the frame. There were those who disliked both he and his work and others who adored him. A fine copy beautiful bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in full tan polished calf, centrally stamped in gilt, title and board edges gilt raised bands, double green morocco gilt and compartments, turn-ins and all edges gilt, decorative endpapers housed in a slipcase matching the endpapers. A few small speckles to labels, a superb copy.
