Printed beige boards, hinge strain at front cover, condition mainly good., 3 or 4 days to the pages, additional space for notes not used. Mainly a record of times, dates, people involved in a busy life of professional and social engagements, and expenditure, at the beginning of Bonham-Carter's years with The House of Collins. He records the occasional "Edit. Meting" (3 Jan. possibly his first?). Information also includes phone numbers and addresses. His background obviously gave him access to many circles. The Collins clients he meets for cocktails, lunch or dinner (Belle Meuniere a favourite) etc. include: Rose Macaulay (working on "The World my Wilderness"), Rosamund Lehmann, Peter Quennell, Desmond Shaw Taylor, Christopher Sykes, Nigel Bruce, Bowes Lyon, Neville Cardus, Ivor Brown, [Ernest] Thesiger, Christopher Hollis, Nancy Spain, Liddell Hart. Professional meetings also include John Murray, and Gollancz at the Savoy, Argentine Ambassador, Weidenfeld, Spencer Curtis Brown, Mrs Knopf. Interesting statements: "Ring J.M. Synge", "World Books Bd Mting, Book Society Mting". His personal, social life (perhaps a tincture of the professional?) involves Tony Lambton, Julain Fane, Rachel, Joyce Buss, R.F. Harrod, I. Berlin, opera with George Barnes, Mrs Douglas Fairbanks, Russell Flint, John Carter, Joyce Grenfell, parties, holidays (Ditchley, Spain, Blenheim, etc) Occasionally there is a little more information e.g. "Ring Hampshire | *Fontana - discuss" or "Send Rommel proof . to Jack Beddington", ; cricket fixtures and the start of theOxford term also feature. His reading also creeps in - eg. Order Ryle - Concept of Mind Hutchinson - RHBC". N° de ref. de la librería 12545
