Hamish Hamilton, publishers, London - first UK edition ISBN:0241899753, 1979. hardcover, 5¾" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Slight lean to spine. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Fourteen b&w illustrations, map, poems, and index. Marguerite, Countess of Blessington (1789 - 1849), was famed for her beauty, wit, the literary salon which she held in London after her widowhood, and for the notorious relationship between the Blessingtons and the young, handsome and feckless Count Alfred d'Orsay whose irresponsible behaviour and ever-mounting debts led to her final downfall and bankruptcy. This book involves her 2½ years in Naples as recorded in her journals.
