SASSOON, Siegfried (Siegfried Loraine), 1886-1967 : [THE SHERSTON TRILOGY] MEMOIRS OF A FOX-HUNTING MAN / MEMOIRS OF AN INFANTRY OFFICER / SHERSTON’S PROGRESS.

SASSOON, Siegfried (Siegfried Loraine), 1886-1967 : [THE SHERSTON TRILOGY] MEMOIRS OF A FOX-HUNTING MAN / MEMOIRS OF AN INFANTRY OFFICER / SHERSTON’S PROGRESS.

London : Faber & Gwyer / Faber & Faber, (1928-1936). A first edition set of the three separately published volumes – “This is fiction, but with a difference – for the author, who wishes at present to remain anonymous, has himself lived the life of a hero” – the first two volumes were published anonymously, the first in an edition of just 1,500 copies. “The most satisfying piece of autobiography to be published in our time. All the equipment of a novelist is Sassoon’s. But what novel could equal in fascination this true story? The three books give him a place unique in English letters” (Howard Spring in the Evening Standard, 3rd September 1936).
Three volumes. Crown 8vo (183 x 113mm). (396),[iv]; 334,[ii]; 280pp. Bound, without one initial blank leaf, in a handsome recent full navy crushed morocco, banded and gilt; all edges gilt; a couple of tiny marks; mild tanning of outer leaves in one volume, but a very good set.

£1,500

Post 8vo (22cm). xvi,(270),[ii]pp. Original green cloth, ruled and lettered in gilt; a very good copy, bright, clean and sound, in the dust-jacket – the fragile jacket just faintly creased, but also very good. Ownership inscription of Rosamond Cave.
