Description:
[c.1924]. Inscribed to an admiring fellow poet A highly appealing keepsake that features William Strang's famous portrait of Vita, "Lady with a Red Hat" (1918), inscribed on the mount, "For Miss Queenie Scott, V. Sackville West, gratefully acknowledging her kind letter, and hoping she has found occasion to smile over 'Seducers in Ecuador'". The "envelope", when opened out, encourages display, suggesting the genial response of a celebrated writer to an enthusiastic admirer. This is a pleasing association, inscribed to fellow writer Olive Hopper (1881-1924), who published under the pseudonym Queenie Scott-Hopper. Her "vaguely mystical verse containing angels and visions" (Platt, p. 111) was often anthologised for children during her lifetime, and her poetry was described as "romantic... simple... entirely undisturbing" (ibid). An ambitious poet, short-story writer, novelist, and librettist, Scott-Hopper's 1919 volume of children's verse, Pull the Bobbin!, was illustrated by Winifred M. Ackroyd, and in… Read More

Description:
15 March 1945. It is very gratifying to know that you have read it more than once A fine typed letter signed from Vita Sackville-West to a reader, Miss Richardson, thanking her for her "nice letter about my book on the Women's Land Army. It is very gratifying to know that you have read it more than once and I expect that you can now give your mother a great deal of information about the Land Army which perhaps she did not already know. I am sending you a photograph. I am afraid it is only the photograph of a painting but it is the only thing that I have got", together with the signed image she is referring to. It is a reproduction of William Strang's painting "Lady with a Red Hat", signed under the image. The Women's Land Army, published in 1944, was written by Sackville-West to raise the profile of the contribution of the Women's Land Army to the war effort, and particularly to feeding the country. This comprehensive survey of the WLA and its members throughout the UK describes their history, duties… Read More

Description:
London: The Dropmore Press,, 1947. By the little gift of poetry and music do the nursery rhymes abide in our hearts First edition, first impression, number 54 of 550 copies on handmade paper. This is Sackville-West's examination into what lies behind some of the old English nursery rhymes and proposing that many of them are far from nonsense, but insights into English history. A review in the Manchester Guardian on 28 October 1947 stated that "Miss Sackville-West's inquiry is often conjectural but always entertaining, and she knows the magic that sometimes brings the nonsense of the nursery song near to pure poetry" (p. 3). Quarto. Original half vellum by Evans, orange cloth sides, spine lettered in gilt, front cover with vignette in gilt, fore and lower edges untrimmed. With dust jacket and original cardboard sleeve. Title page, first page, and last printed in pink and black. Binding sharp, contents clean; jacket faintly soiled, a little rubbed at folds, spine toned, a couple of shallow chips; a… Read More

Description:
London: Michael Joseph,, 1951-58. Her pages offer the uninhibited pleasures of the imagination First editions, first impressions; the complete set of Sackville-West's collections of her highly successful gardening columns. All but two of the essays herein were first printed in The Observer between 1950 and 1957. She called her columns "my sticklebacks", "presumably after the aquatic creature which gave her a subject when she was in despair of finding any other. She would be surprised to know that today her articles, variously anthologized... should be among her best-known works, even if they made Sissinghurst (now a property of the National Trust) one of the most famous of English gardens" (Nicolson, p. viii). Four works, octavo. Original grey, green, red, and blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, top edges of In Your Garden and In Your Garden Again green, More For Your Garden red. With dust jackets.

Description:
London: The Hogarth Press,, 1928. First edition, first impression, of the author's Persian travelogue. This copy has an appealing provenance, from the library of Michael Ernest Sadler, educational pioneer and historian, with his University College, Oxford bookplate. His son, the publisher and author Michael Thomas Sadleir, was a friend and correspondent of Sackville-West, and her husband's publisher at Constable. Michael Thomas Sadleir (formerly Sadler, 1888-1957) was novelist, book collector and bibliographer. He was appointed chairman at Constable & Co. in 1954. In 1919, Sadleir and Sackville-West met in Paris and made plans to start a literary Magazine, titled "The Critic"; she was to run the English section, and Sadleir the European. The project was never realised. Sadleir's father was also a keen collector, although chiefly of art and art books; a promoter of modern art in Great Britain, he was one of the first British collectors to acquire works by Paul Cézanne and Wassily Kandinsky.

Description:
London: Michael Joseph,, 1950. The dedication copy, inscribed to her lover First trade edition, first impression, the dedication copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, "for Anna, her private copy, with the author's love. Christmas 1950", with the printed dedication struck through. This copy was bound for presentation by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The recipient, Anna "Mac" Macmillan (d.1962), became Vita's secretary at Sissinghurst in 1936, and her lover in 1938. Their affair began in autumn, when war with Germany seemed inevitable: "the household was issued with gas masks, and a trench dug in the orchard... Vita's response to the tension had been to allow Mac, her Scottish Presbyterian secretary, to fall in love with her" (Glendinning, p. 295). Macmillan left Sissinghurst during the war to become a nurse with the Queen Alexandra Nursing Service; Sackville-West wrote to her almost every day until her return in 1945, and their affair continued intermittently until 1953, when Sackville-West… Read More

London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1937. Pepita, can I re-create you?

The work relates the love affair of the second Baron Sackville and Pepita. It is "a memorable evocation of her mother and grandmother in which [Sackville-West] tried to come to terms with the most unsettling and uncomfortable aspects of her early life and her dual nationality" (ODNB), seeing "the Spanish side of her nature as passionate and perverse and the English side of her nature as caring and controlled" (Orlando).

Description:
London: W. Collins Sons & Co. Ltd,, [1927]. Her mother's inscribed copy of this fictionalization of their lineage Signed by the author on the title page and inscribed to her mother, the dedicatee, on the dedication page, "M.B.B.M." ["My Beloved Bonne Maman"]; with Lady Sackville's bookplate and ownership inscription on the front endpapers: "My own copy, first edition of this binding, Oct. 1927". Vita Sackville-West's debut novel was first published in 1919 in red cloth. Above the ownership inscription is a clipping of reviews, perhaps mounted by Lady Sackville herself, who often made such interventions in acquisitions to her library, and who acted as the work's publicist on its first publication. This provenance resonates strongly with the novel: the main character, "a woman torn in her temperament between her English and Spanish heritage", is the author's self-portrait, whereas the work's "dashing, gipsy-like hero" grandmother (Orlando) is based on VSW's grandmother Pepita (1830-1872).
