An Autobiography (Volume 2, only, of 4), Asquith, Margot
14 Asquith, Margot An Autobiography (Volume 2, only, of 4)
New York George H. Doran Company 1920 First Edition. 1 Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Publisher's red linen, blue lettering on spine, author's facsimile signature blind-stamped on cover, frontispiece shows B&W sketch of author by the Marchioness of Granby. Margot Asquith, Countess of Oxford and Asquith (1864-1945), born Emma Alice Margaret Tennant, was an Anglo-Scottish socialite, author and wit. She was married to H. H. Asquith, a Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, from 1894 until his death in 1928. Her writing style was not always critically accepted—the most famous review of Asquith's work came from New York wit Dorothy Parker, who wrote, "The affair between Margot Asquith and Margot Asquith will live as one of the prettiest love stories in all literature." Asquith was known for her outspokenness and acerbic wit. A possibly apocryphal but typical story has her meeting the American film actress Jean Harlow and correcting Harlow's mispronunciation of her first name – "No, no; the 't' is silent, as in 'Harlow'." "A woman who has lived all her life among people of note and events of importance, who has been a lively and attractive figure in a lively and attractive society, whose alert mind is reinforced by keen powers of observation, who has no sense of reserve, no passion for accuracy, and no standard of taste, can hardly fail to write an entertaining book." - Yale Review. Front hinge starting, spine faded and bumped, small wear to corners, deckled pages yellowed, ivory endpapers have faint stains at hinge, else unmarked and tight. Volume II only. VERY GOOD. . B&W Photographs. 282 pp
