Early Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The second US edition, in the unclipped dust wrapper.
This biography by the famous literary figure Vita Sackville-West is an extraordinary narrative of the lives of Josefa, her daughter Victoria, and her granddaughter Vita, the author.
Vita tells of Josefa's (or Pepita's) story: of how she made a fortune through dancing in Madrid; of her affair with a young English attaché who will become Lord Sackville; of the career of her daughter Victoria in school; bringing together a family history.
This remarkable biography tells the story of the author's unlikely inheritance, that makes for an absorbing read; It is a touching and affectionate memoir.
