A Class Apart by James Gardiner

A Class Apart by James Gardiner


A Class Apart is a selection of photographs and letters culled from the archive of Montague Glover (1898-1983), documenting the intimate, rarely recorded lives of gay men in Britain from the First World War to the 1950s. The book features Glover's three obsessions: the Armed Forces, working class men, and his lifelong lover Ralph Hall. A seamless blend of the personal and the historical make A Class Apart a unique portrait of a secret relationship and of an undiscovered period in British gay history, compiled by historian James Gardiner and published by Serpent's Tail. Now out of print.


Very Good condition. There is slight wear on the front cover at the two outer corners. All of the interior pages, backcover, and spine are in  excellent condition. There are no markings on the exterior or interior of the book.
