Mary Webb

Neglected Genius

Bringing attention to the lesser-known works of the British poet and novelist Mary Webb (1881–1927), this work includes the only extant manuscript of Webb’s novel Armour Wherein He Trusted; a letter of appreciation from Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin; a group of letters from Webb to her future mother-in-law; and the manuscript of “Clematisa & Percival,” an unpublished story written by her as a teenager and exquisitely illustrated by William Bishop. This two-volume slipcased set accompanied the 2010 Grolier Club exhibition on Mary Webb.
