DESCRIBED BY OSBERT SITWELL. DRAWN BY NINA HAMNETT
The People's Album of London Statues
London England, Duckworth, 1928. First Edition, Binding: Decorative Cloth, Very Good/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Hardback Hardback. First Edition. Foxing to end inside covers and edge. Very slight wear to corners of cloth. Beige cloth with black decoration and lettering. From the library of Robert Birley, signed by him to inside cover. Robert Birley was Headmaster at Charterhouse and Eton College. He was also an Anti-Apartheid Campaigner. The tombs of forgotten men, their statues in plublic places: these are the skeletons at our feast of fame - and the notes that accompany each drawing are as much as possible confined to the, rather than to the still honoured, or to those fashions, in dress as much as in sculpture, and scarcely more transient that the renown they aimed at perpetuating, that every statue illustrates. The essays that follows, on the other hand, is concerned briefly with the history and development of the statue from early times. But both essays and notes are synthetic, born of admiration for Miss Hamnett's charming drawings. The pruist, it is true, may cavil at the inclusion in a book of London open-air statues, of one or two monumental effigies and of two figureheads from old ships, now hanging up outside a timber-yard in Grosvenor Road; but the delight of the drawings will surely disarm such criticism. And it is the humble hope of the author that the pleasure which the artist so evidently found in executing them, and that himself discovered in writing to them, will be communicated to the reader; for the pleasure it has given an author to write is surely one of the chief elements in any similar emotion which the kind reader may derive from the perusal of a book. Illustrations. 131 pp.
