Gorgeous Book of War Poetry – Just In

In Antiques, Books on May 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm
The find of the day -we’ve come across this amazing 1919 edition of Louis Golding’s ‘Sorrow of War’.     Golding went on to a very distinguished literary career, best known for his novel Magnolia Street, published in 1932.   He’s pretty much forgotten now, which is a shame.  But not at The Society Club – we’re thrilled to have this book in-stock.

Today I priced our new selection of rare books, including this gorgeous hardback edition of Contemporary French Poets published in 1912.   Including poets Arthur Rimbaud and Albert Samain.

“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.”
-Arthur Rimbaud
