Hard Cover. As New/As New. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A fascinating dual biography of the Stein siblings, who were American expatriates. Their powerful, poignant relationship was rooted in love, longing, and smoldering rivalry. It was a relationship so profound that when it ruptured in 1914, brother and sister never spoke again, despite their both living into the 1940's. Incredibly well researched, the first biography on Leo Stein and the first on Gertrude Stein to appear in 20 years. The author unearthed incredible amounts of new and rare material including an early G. S. Manuscript, printed in this book for the first time. The book consists of 514 pages (the printed lines of the biography itself are further apart than some following parts) : Biography, 392 pages; "Epilogue: A Family Romance" 393-406; Appendix, 407-414; Acknowledgments, 415-420; Notes, including abbreviations for frequently-cited names, libraries, and collections, 421-422; Prologue (notes covering each page of biography, including the epilogue) 422-485; Bibliography, 487-500; Index, 501-514. The index is an A-Z showcase of well-known painters, authors, and others who knew the Steins. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
