Anthony Blond, London, 1969. First edition in this format. Book Condition: fine - virtually free of shelf wear and with very little sign of use. Dust Jacket Condition: fine and unclipped. Esmeralda is the country girl and Ermyntrude lives in London. Edwardian young ladies fresh from school and resolved to discover for themselves the forbidden mysteries and in these letters they tell all. Lytton Strachey's entertainment, written for the private relish of his circle, is as dainty, fresh and giddy as it was when it reduced the Bloomsbury set to heaps of giggles. Included are seventeen delightful two-colour illustrations by ErtvŠ, who also designed the dust jacket. Forty-seven pages. Red buckram covers with gilt vignette decoration to front and gilt titling to spine. The book also has an introduction by Michael Holroyd.
  • Our price: £20.00
