CONNOLLY, Cyril. The Modern Movement. One Hundred Key Books from England, France and America 1880-1950. [London:] Andre Deutsch, 1965. 8°. Half title. Original blue cloth, dust-jacket with price of 15s unclipped. FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, the front free endpaper inscribed, “Anthony with love from Cyril in gratitude for his constant encouragement and with several corrections in the author’s hand – alas!” and further inscribed at the foot of the same page, “One of 1st six author’s copies. Nov. 22nd 1965.” As the inscription indicates, there are a number of manuscript corrections in Connolly’s hand, perhaps most notably on p.89 where he corrects the spelling of ‘Little Gitting’.
