Love is Less Than God, The Book of the Soul - one of 100 signed

New York: The Sunwise Turn, 1923. First printing. Hardcover. First edition, 1923, no. 10 of 100 signed by Cannan. Small 8vo, cloth backed patterned boards, 42 pp, about fine, bookplate on pastedown, bookstore sticker from Minneapolis on rear endpaper. Very RARE. Cannan (1887-1955) was an interesting literary figure, a novelist and literary figure, who caught the attention of Henry James as a young man, worked as an assistant to J. M. Barrie until Barrie's wife became over-fond of him, was in the circle that included Katherine Mansfield, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Dora Carrington, et al., had a nervous breakdown due to fear of conscription during WWI, having a menage a trois in the early 1920s (perhaps while even composing this book) whilst sojourning in America. This book has a kind of theosophical bent to it, influenced by Ouspensky and Rudolf Steiner if one had to guess and possibly an attempt on his part to restore his sanity. Despite living another 30 years, this was one of the last books he published. Near Fine. Item #H2098
