Augustus John is already a legendary figure; it might be said that from his first descent upon London he has provided material for myth-makers, and that speculation upon what he would do next has never ceased. This book gives the substance of the legends. It is anecdotal and reflective; it is youthful; it is mature; entertaining and provocative; it is a work of literature by a great in another medium. Hardback. First edition in original dust-jacket. Signed and dated by Augustus John to title page. Condition: dust-jacket a little worn to corners and to top and tail of spine. Corner tips of both front and rear flaps trimmed. Some slight foxing (mostly confined to edges, prelims and endpapers), otherwise very good.
