“I HAVEN’T ANY NERVES”: FIRST EDITION OF HERGESHEIMER’S BALISAND

HERGESHEIMER, Joseph. Balisand. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1924. Octavo, original green cloth lettered in gilt, original pictorial dust jacket. Housed in custom slipcase and chemise. $350.

First edition of Joseph Hergesheimer’s novel addressing the century-old struggle between politics and patriotism.

Balisand depends much on the picturesque setting of post-Revolutionary Virginia for its vigor. “Clifton Fadiman spoke of Hergesheimer as ‘the [John Singer] Sargent of the modern American novel,’ thus capturing perfectly the attention to detail and colour in his prose.” Bookplates.

Fine condition.
