HOMAGE TO MARCEL PROUST by Derek Patmore Preface by Princess Marthe Bibesco 1971
HOMAGE TO MARCEL PROUST, by Derek Patmore, with a Preface by Princess Marthe Bibesco.
Published by Covent Garden Press, London, 1971. First edition of this tribute to Marcel Proust.
Thin booklet, 16 unnumbered pages. The colophon page states that 400 numbered copies were printed, but this copy is not numbered ( I am not sure any copies were ever numbered). Booklet is in a folder that has a circular window cut out of the front panel that allows the image of Marcel Proust to show through. The folder was designed by John Kerr, as stated on the folder's inside flap.
GOOD condition, there is a crease to the upper corner of the folder and the booklet, otherwise tight, bright, clean and unmarked. There is hand correction on page 1 that changes the word "man" to "woman". The change was apparently done by the author.
Derek Coventry Patmore, b.1908 d.1972, was a British writer. Princess Bibesco Marthe b.1886 d.1973, was a celebrated Romanian French writer, socialite, style icon and political hostess.
