John Goss (1894-1953), British singer, socialist, writer, scholar, and musicologist. He was well known as a singer and broadcaster on BBC radio in the 1920's and 30's. This was his only novel, written in Japan in the 30's where his wife was stationed at the British Embassy there. The central character in the novel is Albert Pumphrey who has been drafted to the foreign office & with many colourful & quirky characters and Goss's rich language and with his knack of bringing characters to life, it is a must read. This was his first and only novel. Book - in Good green boards with gilt lettering - some marking to the boards and slight bumping to the extreme corners and some bumping and slight wear to the extreme ends of the spine. Contents, Book Plate of Geoffrey Garnier - See Note Below* - slight marking to the occasional page otherwise clean and tightly bound. *This is one of a collection of books from the estate of Jill & Geoffrey Garnier of Newlyn. Jill Garnier [1890 - 1966] Jessie Garnier nee Blyth, always known as Jill, came to Newlyn to study at the Forbes school. There she met her future husband (and cousin) Geoffrey Garnier. Both Jill & Geoffrey became central figures in the later Newlyn School. The couple settled in Orchard Cottage, Newlyn, where they each had large studios built in the garden. It was here that Geoffrey worked as an etcher/engraver and producer of aquatints. Jill spent all the time she could painting or designing and create beautiful embroidered pieces but in those less liberated times she had to juggle her art with the demands of looking after children and running a house.
