White Rose of Weary Leaf. Violet HUNT.

White Rose of Weary Leaf

Heinemann, 1908. First Edition. Cloth. Spine is cracked in middle. Some loss to binding at top and bottom of spine. This is a scarce first edition of Hunt's 1908 novel. Though a prolific and accomplished author, Hunt is better known as a suffragist, socialite, and hostess of literary salons, among whose frequent patrons included Rebecca West, Ezra Pound, D.H. Lawrence, Henry James, Ford Maddox Ford, Somerset Maugham, and many others. She even appeared fictionalized as a character in novels by Ford and Maugham. White Rose of Weary Leaf is considered her best work of fiction, though it is long out of print. Good. Item #295

Price: $20.00
