This is the first volume of the authorized three-volume life of George Bernard Shaw, the playwright, wit, socialist, vegetarian and polemicist. It covers the first 41 years of his life, from his birth and childhood in Dublin to his marriage in 1898 to the Irish heiress and fellow socialist, Charlotte Payne-Townshend.
1988. Second impression. A fine, unmarked copy in a near fine d/w with only light bumping to the spine ends.
