LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Virago Press & London School of Economics & Political Science, London, 2000. Hardcover, 9½" x 6", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with library identification confined to jacket & rear endpapers. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Preface by Hermione Lee. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, dark-green 'faux' leather endpapers, Potter Family tree, 35 b&w photographs, chronology, and index. This massive volume is an abridgement of the original four-volume diaries published in 1982. Beatrice Webb was a Fabian Socialist, social researcher and reformer, co-founder of the Londin School of Economics, and lived at the centre of British intellectual life for almost seventy years. She married co-writer Sidney Webb, and was friend of Winston Churchill, Lloyd George, Ramsay MacDonald, Leonard & Virginia Woolf, Bernard Shaw and H G Wells. Her diaries encompass the Boer war, the devastation of two world wars, and bring to life the important social and cultural changes (women's suffrage, changing moral values, new literature) - one of the greatest diarists of her time.
