Moore, John: Brensham Village.

Moore, John - Brensham Village. Collins. 1946, 1st. ... Brensham is real in the sense that I have built upon a ground-plan and framework of truth: but I have purposely played fast and loose with chronology and topography and have not hesitated to make what Byron called a short armistice with truth in cases where it would have been embarrassing (to say the least of it) to write about living people. For example, I have transplanted a Lord, borrowed a Parson, and imported a Syndicate; and to that extent Brensham is a synthesis of the villages which lie about Elmbury and its biography is a synthesis too. (author's note). 8¼" x 5½", 224pp, brown cloth, hardback. Monochrome frontispiece drawing. Name and date inscription at head of both front endpapers, hinges weak, good, no wrapper.
