First edition, first impression. The Edwardians "celebrated the lavish style of country house life that she had observed in her parents' heyday at Knole" (ODNB). There was also a signed limited edition of 125 copies. This book is uncommon in the jacket and in collectable condition, as here.

This copy has a highly distinguished collector's provenance, bearing the bookplate of William Beekman loosely inserted. Much of Beekman's excellent Bloomsbury Group and Hogarth Press collection now forms part of the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library.
