Knole and the Sackvilles
William Heinemann, London, 1922. First Edition, first printing. Large 8vo. xvi + 230pp. White buckram lettered in black at spine and featuring a superb William Nicholson drawing to the upper board. Publisher's motif black-stamped to corner of lower board. With a tissue-guarded frontispiece and twenty-three plates, plus a Chronology. A hint of shelf-wear to head and base of spine and a minor bump to the head and base of rear board. Endpapers lightly and partially browned. A hint of spotting to preliminary leaves. A really superbly preserved copy in the scarce dust wrapper, reproducing in red Nicholson's upper board drawing. Wrapper tanned at spine panel and with some notable fading to the lettering, a little dust marked and chafed at one or two extremities. A classic in the literature of English country houses. An account of the history and occupants of Knole House, granted to Thomas Sackville by his cousin Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and whose descendants the Earls and Dukes of Dorset and Barons Sackville resided there until it was bequeathed to the National Trust. Knole was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's Orlando and also the setting of several Beatles videos.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good.
