The Sherston Trilogy:] Memoirs of a Fox-hunting - SASSOON, Siegfried - 1928. [1274347]
London: Faber and Gwyer,/Faber & Faber, 1928–36 - 3 volumes, octavo. Original blue buckram, titles to spines gilt, top edges gilt others untrimmed. The usual fading to spines (less so in the first and even less so in the third third work), minimal rubbing to the extremities, some trivial toning to endpapers or spots to edges but a sound and clean set in excellent condition. First editions, signed limited issues, of the complete Sherston Trilogy. Each title was issued as a deluxe edition on handmade paper, numbered and signed by Sassoon, but with different limitations Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man issued in 260 copies (this number 86); Memoirs of an Infantry Officer in 750 copies (this 623), and Sherston's Progress in 300 copies (this 85). This set has laid in some appealing ephemera, a Royal Welch Fusiliers stamp printed on india paper, and a recent photograph showing "discarded ordnance at Point 110, Nr. Mametz (Bois Francais) close to where Sassoon won his MC." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
