The Adventures of the Black Girl in her Search for God.

Constable & Co, London, 1932

CHF 32.–

First edition and first print published by Constable in 1932. Illustrated with 19 wood engravings by John Farleigh (4 are full page).

Description: Original black pictorial boards, ornamental endpapers: Octavo: 21 × 14 cm: pp. 74, [2].

Condition: Some rubbing and minor abrasions to extremities. Pages slightly yellowed with age, with occasional light foxing. Else a very good, clean copy.

Notes: John Farleigh also known as Frederick William Charles Farleigh, was an English wood-engraver, noted for his illustrations in this novel, which caused controversy when released due to the religious, sexual and racial themes within the writing and John Farleigh's complementary (and risqué) wood engravings commissioned by Shaw for the book. He is also known for his illustrations of D.H. Lawrence’s work The Man Who Died and for the posters he designed for London County Council Tramways and London Transport.
