1 Berstl, Julius The Sun's Bright Child - The Imaginary Memoirs of Edmund Keane
London Hammond, Hammond 1946 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good 
Gilt title on red cloth boards which are clean and unmarked with no wear. Internally very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket has wear to edges and some small losses to top and is not price clipped. 192 pages. 21 illustrations. Illustrated endpapers. It was not the author's intention to give an ordinary factual account of Edmund Keane's life, instead, he felt impelled to write this story of an adventurous, uncommonly varied stage player's life in autobiographical form and, at the same time, to show the man Kean as a type of the 'eternal mime' who, in the course of a glorious career, learned to distinguish clearly the illusions of the boards and the reality of the world. J. Berstl had no need to add any fictional embellishments to the facts of Kean's kaleidoscopic life, but he felt that a most vital and telling element would have been lacking had he limited himself to a mere description or report. **** NOT EX LIB ****
