BLUMBERG, JANE
Byron and Shelley
London, Collins and Brown. 1992, First Edition. (ISBN: 1-85585-110-5) Hardcover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 1816 was "the year without a summer", when a volcanic eruption blotted out the sun, and it was also the season when a momentous friendship was forged. Byron, Shelley, Mary Shelley (who wrote "Frankenstein" in that year) and Claire Clairmont (Mary's step-sister, pregnant with Byron's child) were neighbours across the shores of Lake Geneva. Byron had just fled from England following the scandal surrounding his separation from his wife and rumours of incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. This book charts the friendship between the flamboyant Byron and the youthful Shelley's and their friends and hangers-on, through Italy and England, through personal tragedies and passions, sex and scandal, wit and heartbreak - all accompanied by a prodigious and precocious outpouring of brilliant poetry which echoed the creative relationship between Byron and the Shelley's, and their shared view of the world, its follies and its hypocrisies. As New/As New.

BRADFORD, SARAH
America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
London, Viking. 2000. (ISBN: 0-670-87422-1) Hardback, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was and is an icon for women. Beautiful, exquisitely dressed, cultivated, gracious, a little mysterious and almost regal, she personifies the way we would like all our world leaders' wives to be. Sarah Bradford paints an extraordinary portrait of a woman riddled with contradictions: kind, considerate, proud, loyal and loving, yet also supremely selfish, manipulative and greedy. Drawing on remarkable new testimony from those closest to Jackie, "America's Queen" follows her from her rigid, bleak childhood to the glorious glamour and complication of life as Kennedy's wife, to the even more glamorous but ultimately poisonous marriage to Onassis, to the final serenity of her years as a New York publishing editor. The secrets of Onassis's will, Jackie's affairs, her extraordinary spending habits, her treachery to old friends - all of these are revealed together with her public life as the ultimate trophy wife. Very Good/Very Good.
