[moderate wear, minor soiling to page edges at a couple of spots, former owner's name/address on inside front cover, gift inscription (from that owner, passing on the book to friends) on ffep]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) "During her lifetime Isak Dinesen was reluctant to reveal to the public the many photographs which chronicle her fascinating and often tragic life. Among the more than two hundred photographs collected for this handsome picture album are glimpses of the author's aristocratic ancestors and childhood in Denmark, striking photographs of her beloved companions in Kenya, and later more familiar portraits by Cecil Beaton and Peter Beard. This book serves to illustrate the characters and settings of Isak Dinesen's fiction and provide additional insights into her enigmatic personality." Clara Svendsen, who supplied the book's text, was Dinesen's literary secretary for many years.
