(no dust jacket) [solid copy with moderate external wear, a couple of small smudges to front cover, tiny tears and light fraying at spine ends, gilt spine lettering rubbed but still readable, contemporary Christmas gift inscription (in pencil) on ffep, discoloration in gutters]. (B&W photographs, facsimiles) The second memoir by this Welsh-born Edwardian society dame (born Mary Theresa Cornwallis-West), a member of the House of Hochberg, a wealthy Silesian royal family (Silesia is now part of Poland), who would go on to write a third (because life was just so full, y'know). Like its predecessor, it consists largely of reproduced entries from her diaries, in this case covering 1895 through 1914, with an additional chapter tacked on that sort of rushes through the postwar years, up to about 1924. (She had covered 1914-1918 in her previous book.) As befits the nonstop name-dropping throughout, the index runs 38 double-columned pages. (Published in England as "From My Private Diary.")
