John Hargrave books at Browsers Uncommon Books

John Hargrave books at Browsers Uncommon Books, updated 22August2012
Harbottle: A Modern Pilgrim's Progress From This World to That Which Is To Come. Philadelphia, 1924, no dustjacket.









Author is an interesting character:

1. As still a boy in his teens he was an illustrator for John Buchan's books
2. He was an early Boy Scout and founder of an alternative group called Kindred of the Kibbo Kift
3. Invented an map reading device for airplanes
4. Was an adherent of Social Credit
5. Was an enemy of the Bank of London
6. a pacifist Quaker
 "Hargrave married one of the founder members of the Kindred, Ruth Clark 'Minobi', the leader of 'The Merrie Campers' group of woodcraft girls who had Joined the new organisation. Their son Ivan was born in 1921 and to augment his income, Hargrave, whose seven previous books had related mainly to woodcraft matters, turned to fiction and in 1924 he published his first novel HARBOTTLE. It enjoyed a considerable success, achieving best-seller status, and over the next ten years Hargrave published a further five novels. All are lively, idiosyncratic books, each remarkable in its own way and all clearly showing the author's preoccupation with the unsatisfactory condition of society and his own, highly individual solutions." Chris Judge Smith
