Descripción:

Publisher's yellow cloth; large 8vo; pp. [6], 1-[22]. Number 5 from a limited edition of 225 copies, printed by The Westminster Press, and signed by Edith Sitwell on the limitation page. Presentation copy, inscribed on the verso of the FFEP with a lengthy handwritten poem, "The Tomb of the Nymphs," which she has signed and dated June 1927, with the parenthetical "unpublished" (tho this is no longer the case). With the ownership inscription of Stephen [Tennant] on the FFEP, "Stephen / his (adored) / book. 1926" and his ink sketch rendering half a human form. A superb association copy. Cloth a bit dust-smudged, with a few small spots of soiling; spine tips and corners rubbed. Together with Cecil Beaton, Siegfried Sassoon, and others, Stephen Tennant and Edith Sitwell were part of the 1920s London social circle dubbed the "Bright Young People." A British aristocrat known for his flamboyance and giddy temperament, Stephen Tennant was even better known for doing absolutely nothing -- it is said that he spent much of his life in bed. Described by Osbert Sitwell, Edith's younger brother, as "the last professional beauty," Tennant's eccentricities were encouraged by Beaton and inspired a slew of fiction, namely the characters of Sebastian Flyte in Evelyn Waugh's "Brideshead Revisited" and Cedric Hampton in Nancy Mitford's "Love in a Cold Climate.".
