DEVAS, NICOLETTE - Susannah's Nightingales

London, Collins and Harvill Press. 1978, First Edition. (ISBN: 0002627582). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Very Good + unmarked copy with complete dustjacket. The author had no formal education as her father Francis Macnamara, Irish landowner, poet and friend of Yeats believed that women were here to adorn life and give comfort to men's needs, and she and her two sisters were brought up by their mother, mostly in the New Forest. Apart from a close friendship with the Augustus John circle, their neighbours, they lived in considerable isolation. Nicolette went to the Slade School of Art subsequently marrying Anthony Devas, the painter, and during the war started to write, her mother's Irish-French background influencing her. This book took four years to research and write and is a follow on to her autobiography 'Two Flamboyant Fathers', which spotlights the French forbears alluded to in her autobiography. 18 illustrations and a map. NOT EX LIB NOT BOOK CLUB B2B. Very Good/Very Good.
