About this Item: B.T. Batsford Limited, London, 1945. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. London, B.T. Batsford Limited, 1945. Octavo, vi, 111 pages with several illustrations plus 32 pages of plates and a colour frontispiece (from a watercolour); all illustrations and plates are by the author. Bright orange cloth with the stylized title in yellow on the spine and front cover; covers a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities; an excellent copy with the dustwrapper a little worn with minor loss to the extremities. A 'brilliant and authentic glimpse of India and China at war'. The flyleaf is inscribed and signed in pencil by Cecil Beaton 'To Sir Horace & Lady Seymour with all good wishes & with many Happy memories of Chungking'. Sir Horace James Seymour (1885-1978) was the British Ambassador to China, 1942 to 1946, based in the provisional capital Chungking (present-day Chongqing). There is a second inscription, presumably in Sir Horace's hand, below Beaton's: 'Chungking. Handed on to Mr [?] Bristowe to read over the Hump. Christmas 1945'. South Australian-born Robert Francis Bristowe (1904-1959), was a King's Messenger for the British Foreign Office, operating at this time between Calcutta and Chungking (see the Adelaide 'Advertiser', Tuesday 16 October 1945, page 6). His extensive travels over many years in this role resulted in him being the inspiration behind Santos (see 'The Australian Pipeliner', 16 March 2016). Seller Inventory # 107867

About this Item: London: B. T. Batsford Ltd, 1945, 1945. Octavo. Original orange cloth lettered in yellow, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Very slightly bowed, spine a little faded at foot. A very good copy in the dust jacket, very lightly foxed, spine lightly sunned, chipped at extremities. Colour frontispiece after a painting by the author, 44 monochrome photographs on plate paper, 14 illustrations in the text. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Hugh Francis, who was so helpful to me in my travels abroad – with all good wishes Cecil Beaton"; with Francis's superscript ownership inscription. A fine association copy: Hugh Francis was Controller of Photographs at the Ministry of Information. As Beaton wrote: "When war was declared I knew myself to be incapable of filling any regular service job. Fortunately, Hugh Francis of the M. of I., at the suggestion of Sir Kenneth Clark, saw fit to employ me as a photographer" (The Best of Beaton, 1968). Another version of this story has Francis telling Beaton to "get off the cocktail circuit and back to grass roots" (British Journal of Photography, volume 128, issues 4-52, 1981). Francis also commissioned Bill Brandt to make a full record of life in bomb shelters during the war and he has been described as a "capable and energetic man who had served in the Ministry in the First World War, and who had immediate business experience as a senior executive with EMI" (Charles Craig, The British Documentary Photograph as a Medium of Information and Propaganda during the Second World War, masters degree thesis, Middlesex Polytechnic, 1982). Beaton's Far East includes chapters on India and Burma, aside from several covering his wartime service in China. Seller Inventory # 123387
