Fellowes was a celebrated 20th-century society figure and heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune. This is her most acclaimed novel, issued in English as "Sundays" and illustrated with a suite of amusing drawings by Marcel Vertes.

One of 20 copies of the tete de l'edition (#15) printed on Japon, signed by both the author and the illustrator, which also includes two states of the illustrations as well as an original illustration by Vertes. Original wrappers present, bound in a full morocco pink binding by Riviere, occasional very light spotting, light wear at joints. In addition, there is another original illustration by Vertes bound in to the text (not called for in the colophon). A lovely book.

Price: $400.00
