About this Item: Macmillan Publishers Ltd, London, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Jacket after Sir Joshua Reynolds (illustrator). 1st Edition. First edition, first impression with full number line. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, IN BLACK PEN, ON TITLE PAGE 'To Frances, All the best, Carola Hicks'. Some slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, corners very slightly bruised, not price clipped (£18.99), no other inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy. 404pp, illustrated. Here is a passionate tale of an 18th century artist's scandalous life. Lady Diana Spencer was born in 1735, the eldest child of the third Duke of Marlborough. She was expected to follow a traditional path through life, educated in the fashion considered suitable for a girl, and married to a man of the appropriate rank for a duke's daughter. However, Lady Di overturned convention. She left her husband, pursued a secret relationship with Topham Beauclerk, hid the birth of an illegitimate child, was divorced, remarried and eventually had to earn her living by painting. Lady Di became a highly gifted artist who painted portraits, illustrated books and plays, provided designs for Wedgewood's innovative pottery and decorated rooms with murals. Carola Hicks provides a account of her life and the world she inhabited. She sheds light on the whole artistic life of the 18th century and the dramatic consequences of the transgressing of boundaries. Scarce signed. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 006215

About this Item: Little Brown and Company, London, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Jacket after Sir Joshua Reynolds (illustrator). 1st Edition. First edition, second impression, published later the same year. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, WITHOUT DEDICATION, IN BLACK PEN, ON TITLE PAGE. Some very slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, slight browning to page block, not price clipped (£16.99), no other inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy, looks almost unread. 242pp. A masterly evocation of the last years of Dr Johnson, arguably Britain's greatest 'Man of Letters'. The time is the 1770s and 1780s and Johnson, having completed his life's major work (he compiled the first ever Dictionary of the English Language) is living an increasingly chaotic life. Torn between his strict morality and his undeclared passion for Mrs Thrale, the wife of an old friend, 'According to Queeney' reveals one of Britain's most wonderful characters in all his wit and glory. Above all, though, this is a story of love and friendship, brilliantly narrated by Queeney, Mrs Thrale's daughter, looking back over her life. Queeney (1764-1857), later became the second wife of naval hero George Elphinstone, 1st Viscount Keith. Beryl Bainbridge (1932-2010), has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize three times and has won both the Guardian and Whitbread Prizes. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 006367
