The Heir: A Love Story (signed by author)
Printed for Private Circulation, 1922 - 1st edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author below her frontispiece portrait. Patterned cloth with quarter-bound white linen spine, with paper label, clean pages, browned endpapers, hand-made paper. One of 100 copies only, 1-50 for trade sale by Heinemann in a different cloth, copies 51-100 provided for the author's personal use, this being hand-numbered 98/100. The inscription on the fep reads, 'With the very best of good wishes from the author's mother (B.M.) Victoria Sackville (Dowager) to dear Miss Le Bosquet, August 1930'. Vita dedicated her book to B.M. (her shorthand for 'Bonne Mama'), and underneath this Victoria Sackville has also written 'B.M. is the Dowager Lady Sackville who thanks dear Miss Le Bosquet for all her kindness to ''V.Sackville West''. May she never lose {sic} you.'. There is also a letter, laid in, which reads, 'My dear Miss Le Bosquet, I thought you would rather have this private Edition which is (introuvable {sic?}) than any other souvenir from me - Please accept it with my blessings. V. Sackville (Dowager)'. This copy of the author's charming short novel is therefore utterly unique with these associations. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
