217 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "....ranges the wide field between fact and fiction. Partly, in its beginnings, it is Mr. Sitwell's autobiography in terms of what he has described and seen. An American critic has written of him : 'Perhaps no writer has ever covered a wider range in the arts that make life beautiful. Particularly impressive is the sum and volume of his writings on architecture, painting and sculpture.' The same critic continues: 'But his passi o n f o r m u s ic and the theatre is almost as constant,' and of this enthusiasm there is full evidence in this new work, which contains particularly beautiful passages on dancing. A good deal of the last part of the book is taken up with flower d es c ri pt io n s, a nd here the author writes with all the fire he devoted to 'The Kingdom of the Birds'....Mr. Sitwell has never trodden the beaten track, and 'Cupid and the Jacaranda' is unlike any other book. It shows him at his best, and wil l n ot fa il to fi nd its de votees." A few tiny faint foxing specks on endpapers - also at top edge of title page and preceeding page, slight fading and a few tiny foxing marks to color on top of textblock, light wrinkling at bottom of spine , mi nor edg e we ar. D ust ja cket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few tiny chips, two small tears - one with creases, light fading/browning to spine and flap-folds - tiny foxing marks on flap-folds, light browning and scattered foxing on ins ide s urfa ce.
