Stars Were Born.
London: Constable & Co Ltd, 1934. First edition. Hardback in original unclipped dust jacket. Barbara Lucas wrote this novel aged just 21. Lucas was the granddaughter of the British poet and essayist Alice Meynell. This novel tells the story of two sisters, the daughters of artists, who resolve to not lose sight of their own talents, and become like their mother - a plodding middle-class housewife. Dust jacket has some chips and creases, with a little loss to head of spine. Book clean and tidy inside. A scarce slice of 1930's fiction! 314 pages + 24 pages of adverts to rear. 190 x 130 mm (7½ x 5 inches).
