Item Description: Penguin Group: King Penguin, New York, NY, 1990. Paperback. First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: very light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to wrapper covers; the pages have tanned, due to aging; binding shows slight lean, while remaining perfectly secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 336pp. First published in hardcover in 1984 this is the First King Penguin impression- Penguin has since reissued the book with a new cover. Trade Paperback. Vividly paints a picture of wartime life in London and rural England, from the point of view of some unorthodox characters. It is one of my all-time favourite books - not because it is particularly 'literary' or a great classic, but because it is such an absorbing and touching read. All Mary Wesley's books are good, but this one, I believe, is the best. Bookseller Inventory # 41437

Item Description: Macmillan London Ltd, London, 1984. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Jacket by Christopher Wood (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First edition, first impression. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON FFEP '22-3-84. Phylly with love and thanks from Mary' and in pencil 'Presentation Copy'. Some very slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, some slight browning to page fore edges, not price clipped (£8.95), no other inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy. 297pp. Oliver is just back from the Spanish Civil War and world weary at only nineteen. Calypso is gorgeous, utterly selfish and determined to marry for money. Polly and Walter, brother and sister, play their cards close to their chests. Then there's little Sophie, who nobody loves. Soon the world will be swept into war again and the five cousins will enter a whirligig of sex, infidelity, love and loss, but for now they have one last gaspingly hot summer at the house by the cliffs with the camomile lawn. Mary Wesley (1912-2002), published her first novel when she was 70, and went on to write 9 more bestsellers before her death in 2002 at the age of 89. Wesley was a pen name, derived from the family name of Wellesley. She was born Mary Farmar, descended from the Duke of Wellington, and grew up a rebel who believed that she was her mother's least favourite child. Like many girls of her background, she married for escape, but her first marriage to Lord Swinfen was conventional. Her second husband, Eric Siepmann, a writer who never managed to make any money at all, was feckless and bohemian. In between Swinfen and Siepmann, she had a love affair with Czech war hero, Heinz Ziegler, and possibly with his brother at the same time, and in her later years enjoyed a torrid relationship with Robert Bolt. At the outbreak of the Second World War she was, as she put it, 'roped into intelligence', where she worked on breaking codes. Her experiences in MI5 and her many wartime love affairs, which form the core of this biography, also formed the cores of her novels. She wrote about the atmosphere of the home front, and how war dislocates families, and how a sense of the imminence of death loosens the inhibitions, her novels are sexy and witty. 'The Camomile Lawn' was her second novel for adults and her first best seller. Very scarce signed. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 005079
