LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London - first edition ISBN:0297795392, 1989. hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. 16 pages of photos. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Drawn from the author's extensive interviews with over 100 of the debutantes of 1939, this book recreates the atmosphere of a lost age. Hitler entered Prague on 15 March, but the season of '39 began as usual with the preview to the Summer Exhibition and the Royal Academy in April. And as evacuation plans were being drawn up for London, the Season followed its customary course. Soon even the most naïve social butterflies were transformed in filing clerks, or Red Cross workers.
