PARADE'S END (THE "TIETJENS" NOVELS): Some Do Not, No More Parades (INSCRIBED BY FORD), A Man Could Stand Up, and Last Post.

London/ New York: Thomas Seltzer/ Duckworth, 1924 - 1928. First edition set save for the first volume, which is the first U.S.; all four volumes in the scarce to rare dust jackets. Also includes a near fine, unjacketed copy of the Duckworth second "edition" (impression) with chapter headings corrected that was published just 2 months after the first. Ford's tetralogy set during WWI, mainly in England and on the western front, where Ford himself served as an officer in the Welch Regiment. Mary Gordon called PARADE'S END "quite simply, the best fictional treatment of war in the history of the novel." Basis for the 2012 BBC / HBO mini-series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall. SOME DO NOT (NY: 1924), in black paper boards over half orange cloth lettered in black on spine. Orange cloth inexplicably but evenly shadowed on each side (the spine is fine) and pages a little darkened, otherwise very good to near fine in good to very good dust jacket with few skinned areas and marginal chipping affecting only the tips of letters at head of spine. NO MORE PARADES (London: 1925), in green cloth boards with gilt-lettered spine. INSCRIBED BY FORD to British novelist and friend Cyril Anthony George Bertram (1897 - 1978), "FOR ANTHONY BERTRAM/ Ford Madox Ford [underlined]/ Bijou 14 May MCMXXXIV." Faint offsets to endpapers and title page a little foxed, otherwise near fine in lightly soiled dust jacket with small stain on rear panel (otherwise near fine). A MAN COULD STAND UP (London: 1925), in green cloth boards with gilt-lettered spine. Foxing to page edges and title page, otherwise bright and fine in fine, lightly soiled dust jacket. LAST POST (London: 1928), in green cloth boards with gilt-lettered spine. Pastedowns and hinges darkened, spine ends just a touch frayed, otherwise near fine in good to about very good dust jacket showing light soiling, tanning to spine, small hole in front flap fold and chipping to spine ends that is not affecting any lettering. A remarkable set, nearly impossible to assemble, especially in dust jackets. IN THE SCARCE TO RARE DUST JACKETS.
