A Collection of Papers and Correspondence Relating to the Publication History of Four Early Novels by Bruce Marshall: From the Archives of Victor Gollancz

V.p.: N.p., V.d.

A small quantity of typed and holograph contracts, correspondence and associated materials, between and concerning Bruce Marshall, his publisher, and other interested parties, and relating to four of his novels. Various sizes and dates, the whole housed in four manila folders. Some edgewear and toning consistent with the material's use and age, but a very well preserved collection..

The prolific novelist Bruce Marshall [1899-1987], although best known for his novel Father Malachy's Miracle [1931], enjoyed a literary career spanning seventy years. Born in Edinburgh, Marshall trained as an accountant, but by the age of nineteen was already a published author. He served in both wars, in World War Two as a liaison officer with the French Resistance. He lived as an expatriate for most of his life, but much of his writing speaks to his enduring love for Scotland in general and Edinburgh in particular. The World, The Flesh and Father Smith [1945], The Black Oxen [1972] are both firmly located in Scotland -- and Father Malachy's Miracle recreates much of Edinburgh's atmosphere and topography of the 1930s: the novel's disreputable dance hall, The Garden of Eden, is closely based on The Blue Lagoon which at the time was similarly disreputable and located in Picardy Place, and the book's primary location, the Church of St. Margaret, is in fact the Cathedral Church of St. Mary at the top of Leith Walk.
