“FUJI WAS A JAPANESE PUG, AND RATHER CORRECT, SO GISSING WAS ASHAMED TO DO WHAT HE WANTED TO DO”
MORLEY, Christopher. Where the Blue Begins. Garden City: Doubleday, Page, 1922. Octavo, original half blue cloth and cream pictorial boards, original matching dust jacket. Housed in custom slipcase and chemise. $200.
First edition of Morley’s philosophical fantasy of the dog Gissing in search of a divinity.
Morley’s third novel “is a kind of fairy tale, if you like; an allegory, perhaps; a story… full of quaint absurdity, laughter, and satire; but with an undercurrent of beauty and meaning.”
Book fine, light spotting to original dust jacket. A near-fine copy.
