A presentation copy, inscribed on a leaf of his notepaper, embossed with his seal, pasted to the reverse of the half title page 'To Anne Seagrim with best wishes from Edward April 1951'.

Anne Seagrim was the secretary to the Duke of Windsor from 1950 to 1954, her main task at the beginning being to help type up these memoirs. She became a loyal and staunch defender of the Duke and Duchess, and it was she who broke the news to them of the death of George VI. She also worked for C.P. Snow, typing up many of his novels, and later worked for Lord Alexander of Tunis.

Some wear to the head and tail of the spine.
