First edition. The brothers John Cowper Powys, Theodore Francis Powys and Llewelyn Powys were members of a prolific and influential circle of writers and poets of the early twentieth century. In this, the first comprehensive bibliography of the writings of Llewelyn Powys (1884-1939), Peter Foss not only provides a complete description of every first edition of Llewelyn Powys's books (34 in all), but also describes all other editions and translations. He also gives a full account of the biographical and critical context surrounding the composition of each book, together with lists of reviews and quotations from contemporary sources. As well as the books of Llewelyn Powys, the bibliography also provides a detailed listing of over 600 of his newspaper and periodical contributions, and collates and cross-references this material with other printings in collections and anthologies. Included are illustrations of selected covers, title-pages and dust-jackets. The book provides much new information and will be of invaluable use to scholars, collectors and historians of twentieth-century English literature.

Peter Foss was formerly editor of The Powys Journal and Honorary Secretary of the Powys Society. He is the author of A Study of Llewelyn Powys.
