JOHN GALSWORTHY, The Forsyte Saga, illustrated 1950 edition with drawings by Antony Gross. [The Forsyte Saga, first published under that title in 1922, is a series of three novels and two interludes published between 1906 and 1921 by Nobel Prize–winning English author John Galsworthy. They chronicle the vicissitudes of the leading members of a large, upper-middle-class English family, similar to Galsworthy’s family. Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, the family members are keenly aware of their status as “new money”. The main character, Soames Forsyte, sees himself as a “man of property” by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessions – but this does not succeed in bringing him pleasure.]Wikipedia
