Notes

First edition, number XIII of twenty copies signed by Edmund White and containing an original signed etching by Pierre Le-Tan, preserved in a folder at the end. "This previously unpublished essay is an account of the author's first meeting with his mentor, Edith Sitwell and captures his minutely observed insights into human behaviour and aesthetics that earned him a loyal following in his short writing career" (publisher's blurb). A most attractive production, printed by hand on Arches paper at the Dartmouth College Graphic Arts Workshop. Le-Tan's beautifully restrained artwork is a perfect match for Welch's prose.
