First edition. 8vo., original green cloth. London, Macmillan & Co.
Inscribed by the author to her "last, loved, protege" (Glendinning), "For Quentin Stevenson with best wishes from Edith Sitwell". She lent her approbation to the wrap-around band of his first book, of poetry, The Succession, and boosted him extravagantly. Victoria Glendinning describes a touching moment after a Sitwell lunch at the Sesame Club when Joe Ackerley told him kindly "You do know - don't you? - she's over-praising you dreadfully." An excellent copy, a little rubbed at the extremities.
