SIEVEKING, Lance, & Francis Bruguiere.
Beyond This Point.
First edition, first impression. Inscribed by Sieveking on the front free endpaper, “For Elizabeth Hudson, my friend: Lance Sieveking, [?] Library, June 11th 1936”. Additionally inscribed by the author on the upper panel of the dust jacket, “60 Carlyle Square, Chelsea, London”. The recipient Elizabeth Hudson (1885–1973), was a nurse in Paris during the First World War and became a correspondent with many soldiers, some of whom she kept in contact with for many years. She became a good friend of E. OE. Somerville, and compiled a bibliography of her works that was published in 1942. Sieveking served in France during the First World War, and it may have been there, or through post-war artistic circles, that he met Hudson .
