  • Hunt, Violet [Isabel, 1862-1942.]
    I HAVE THIS TO SAY: The Story of My Flurried Years.

    Edition: First US printing.

    New York: Boni & Liveright, 1926. Hardcover first edition - Surprisingly uncommon later autobiographical work - this covers the period from 1908 to 1915 with many digressions. Beginning with the preface where she describes walking as a little girl with John Ruskin, this is a glimpse into the lives of many important literary figures of the era, including D. H. Lawrence, Somerset Maugham, Henry James, Rebecca West and Joseph Conrad. Suffragettes, 'wild English women,' exile in Germany and life under wartime conditions, are all touched upon. Lively and entertaining. Illustrated with a frontispiece and 12 sepia toned plates. 306 pp.

    Condition: Very good in teal cloth covers with lighter turquoise lettering, lacking the dustjacket (missing front endpaper - as a substitute, the frontispiece was affixed to the blank prelim to give more stability to this first page, outer edges of boards slightly bumped.) Still a reasonably attractive copy of a title which is very difficult to find.
