Occasional Caprices For the Edification of Ladies And the Delight of Gentlemen. First edition, 1951. Hardback. 75pp. Salmon pink cloth with gilt. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. "He, who rarely accepts correction with deference, is, on this occasion, suspiciously eloquent in professions of repentance, professions which in their effusiveness bear a remarkably strong resemblance to our own natural prolixity. His defence amounts to no more than this: the verbal herbiage, momotonous and repetitive, is ours, he says; the rich and varied pictorial flowers are his own. Let Readers judge, he adds." the book is dedicated to "All virtuous young ladies who pose unadorned for honest artists." Book in very good condition. Minor bumping to corners. A narrow band of discolouration to lower edge of upper board. Faint toning to endpapers. Internally very clean. Dust jacket fair. Unclipped thought the price of 15s has been struck through in pen. Generally rubbed and soiled. Extremities of spine chipped and worn. Corners chipped and some edge wear. Spine discoloured. Small ink mark to rear.
  • Our price: £20.00
