THE PRE-RAPHAELITE BROTHERHOOD: A Critical Monograph. Ford Madox Ford, Ford Madox Hueffer. THE PRE-RAPHAELITE BROTHERHOOD: A Critical Monograph.
London/ New York: Duckworth & Co./E. P. Dutton, [1907]. First edition. Like his earlier artists' studies, this one is published in the "Popular Library of Art" series (later printing copies are in the "Masters of Painting" series). INSCRIBED, "For George Keating / Ford Madox Ford," most likely in the 1930's. After Ford's heart attack in 1931 left him broke, Keating offered to pay his way to New York and acted as an advisor on which publishers he should approach. Keating, an executive in a paper company, eventually amassed a large collection of Conradiana, which he donated to Yale University. In a 1973 letter to Thomas Moser regarding, among other things, the Arthur Mizener biography of Ford, THE SADDEST STORY, Keating wrote, "I found [it] very interesting but wondered a bit about his facts. For instance, the references he made to me (several times) were not entirely correct. During the last few years I had quite a lot to do with Ford and I am happy to say that I feel I did not let the old man down." Original red cloth with gilt lettering and design on spine and front cover and TEG. Mild damp staining to and along spine, otherwise only minor wear and would be very good. Harvey A23 calls for brown boards, making this a variant in a nicer binding. INSCRIBED TO COLLECTOR AND BENEFACTOR, GEORGE KEATING.

WHEN BLOOD IS THEIR ARGUMENT: An Analysis of Prussian Culture. Ford Madox Ford, Ford Madox Hueffer. WHEN BLOOD IS THEIR ARGUMENT: An Analysis of Prussian Culture.
New York and London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1915. First edition [Harvey A49]. "A lively, personal, and extremely persuasive indictment of modern Prussianism" (Daily Telegraph). INSCRIBED on the half-title page, "For George Keating / Ford Madox Ford." After Ford's heart attack in 1931 left him broke, Keating offered to pay his way to New York and acted as an advisor on which publishers he should approach. Keating, an executive in a paper company, eventually amassed a large collection of Conradiana, which he donated to Yale University. Laid in is a TLS from Keating to Ford biographer/literary critic Thomas Moser relating a story about Yale and Ford. It reads in part, "I can tell you a funny story regarding Ford. I gave . . . practically a complete [Ford] collection to the university and they later asked me if I would ask Ford to give a talk . . . . [after making arrangements for the talk and not hearing from them] I called them . . . only to learn that they had changed their mind and then they had the gall to add, did I think Ford would autograph the set of first editions I had given them. I told them very bluntly I did not....." Keating goes on to relate an offer of assistance he made to Joseph Conrad's son, Borys, in a cable to his wife, "I cabled Mrs. Conrad, offering to make full restitution to the injured party so that his father's name would not suffer and I have some place on file the cable advising, 'nothing can be done--grateful thanks--Conrad' or words to that effect. At one time or another in all our lives, there arises something that we deeply regret and would never repeat doing, and I felt this was true of Borys' act." Red cloth lettered in black on front cover and spine. Light shelf wear and spine slightly toned, still very good. INSCRIBED TO A BENEFACTOR, WITH INTERESTING AND ILLUMINATING TYPED LETTER SIGNED LAID IN.
