Printing Details

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 288pp.

The autobiography F P "Freddie" Barton, in which he describes his social life, travels, sports, service in the Great War, life in Canada and Monte Carlo, expert at bridge etc. Subtitled "Love and adventure in: the wilds of Canada; the plains of Flanders; and, East of Suez [and] in the reigns of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King Edward VIII and King George VI", and from the wrapper "a true and unexaggerated life-story of thrilling interest which will intrigue the reader from cover to cover. There have been many autobiographies of famous men—here is something different—the life of a brilliant failure. A faithful record of London Society, the Stage, and the Gambling Rooms of Monte Carlo from the naughty nineties to the 'present day'".


The book is in very good condition with clean pages and secure binding (there is some light foxing to the endpapers). The wrapper is intact but a little chipped to the joints and edges but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
