NICHOLSON, William / SASSOON, Siegfried

SASSOON, Siegfried Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man

Faber & Faber, 1929.

First illustrated edition. Original publisher's white cloth with black lettering, and red and black decorations, in pictorial dustwrapper. Inscribed by Sassoon on the half-title, "Dame Nellie Burton, from SS, Nov 5th 1929". Pictorial endpapers. Seven two-tone woodcut plates under tissue guards, and numerous head- and tail-pieces throughout. A very good copy, light splash to cover, in a good dustwrapper, a little chipped and worn.

Nellie Burton met Siegfried Sassoon through Robbie Ross, and had formerly been Ross's mother's maid. At the time of making Sassoon's acquaintance, she was Ross's landlady, housing him on the first floor of 40 Half Moon Street:
"She was a huge, forthright woman whom Sassoon came to adore - she called him 'my beloved Saint Siegfried' - and a fierce protector of her 'gentlemen' lodgers" (Egremont).

Keynes A30d.
