Sherston's Progress

SASSOON, Siegfried

SASSOON, Siegfried Sherston's Progress

Faber & Faber, 1936.

First edition. Publisher's blue cloth, lettered gilt. Inscribed by Sassoon for his mother on the half-title, "Dearest Ash, with love from Sig." A very good copy.

An exceptional association copy, inscribed by Sassoon for his mother Theresa Thornycroft.
She is immortalised in the present autobiography and its preceding volumes, as the much loved and influential character of "Aunt Evelyn".
She was very fond of the series, writing of its first volume: "It is a masterpiece of prose. How you have preserved in a sort of amber made up of sunlight of the past years of dear old simple English life. That happy human time is gone". Sassoon responded to this letter by saying that it was "the greatest joy to me when you enjoy my writings".

PROVENANCE: Georgina Theresa Thornycroft, 1853-1947, painter (authorial inscription); Siegfried Sassoon (Sotheby's, 15 October 1982, lot 46).
