Details

Uncorrected proof copy of Hepburn's first book. Though unmarked as such, this copy is from the library of Hepburn's agent, Freya Manston, who, together with Hepburn, prevented the publication of the book in this form, as they were unhappy with the quality of the typography and the lack of illustrations. It was published later the same year in a more handsome form, with numerous photos. Together with a promotional extract from the book, illustrated with behind-the-scenes photographs.
