Images and Shadows Part of a Life.
London John Murray 1970 - 8vo. First edition. Original blue cloth, lettered in gilt. Ink presentation on fly. Packet of letters (etc) loosely inserted. Near fine in near fine dust-wrapper. 'For Jane Boulenger "without whom" in the classic phrase - but never truer - gratefully & affectionately Iris October 26th 1970'. The packet of letters includes several pages of Jane Boulenger's pencil-written and typed editorial notes improving the book, all of which have been annotated by Iris Origo. The author's profuse thanks for these changes is mentioned in accompanying letters both before and after the book's appearance in print and the inclusion of a Christmas card with small photographs of seven grandchildren, and a New Year's card with a black and white photograph of La Foce, testify to the close friendship that developed between the two women. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
