A themed anthology on movies, including the fascinating piece about 'Casablanca', featuring a description of what Rick and Ilsa did when the cameras weren't on them.
By Robert Coover, an American novelist known for his works of fabulation and metafiction.
From the library at Julians Park, Hertfordshire, once the library of Audrey Pleydell-Bouverie. After being widowed at 25, Audrey married the fabulously wealthy American department store heir, Marshall Field III, later divorcing him and marrying the Honorable Peter Pleydell-Bouverie. In 1940 she bought Julians Park and redesigned the interior. Her library was impressive, with many examples of her own bookbinding.
Audrey was an extravagant socialite and renowned beauty, the illegitimate granddaughter of King Edward VII (though she was also rumoured to be his daughter, or the lover of King Edward VIII), featured in the 'Book of Beauty' by Cecil Beaton. She had many high profile friends, such as Winston Churchill, Coco Chanel, Fred Astaire, and Nancy Mitford, a sparkling hostess of the Edwardian period, her hedonistic antics bringing her into the Bright Young Things.
In the original publisher's cloth binding, in the original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, fine. Dustwrapper is fine with a small amount of label residue to the tail of the backstrip. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
