Mar. 1st., 1928." Clare. (signed by the author) ** some pencil writing above that states 'author's inscription', top of same page corner is chipped.***** Scarce*** Rare** and Inscribed by Clare (Sheridan) This inscription is hard to verify but looks authentic and was dated the same year as the publishing date. An amazing book about a free thinking, independent woman's life leading up to WW1 and after, during the revolutionary times in Russia, sculpting the busts of Lenin and Trotsky, meeting John Reed and attending his funeral in Russia, his close but strained at times relationship with her cousin Winston Churchill, her life as a journalist meeting all the leader's and important figures, her time in America with Charlie Chaplin, her marriage, her children, her widowhood, her affairs. A fascinating woman in any time. I wonder to whom she inscribed this book? I believe she purposely left the name out and yet it was an intimate inscription. It was found in a little antique shop in High Falls, NY near the Catskill Mountains. High Falls was famous for the Delaware and Hudson canal system and for the summer homes of artists including Marc Chagall, the Russian born Jewish Artist. Bookseller Inventory # 000069
