This rare Audrey hepburn signature dates from the same year that she started serving as UnicEF Goodwill Ambassador and comes directly after her trip to famine-ravaged Ethiopia. She continued in this role until her premature death of cancer in 1993, travelling to places as diverse as Turkey, vietnam, Bangladesh and Somalia to raise international awareness of the plight of children in the world’s most depressed areas. in the words of UnicEF Executive Director carol Bellamy in 2002: “She was an inspiration, she brought enormous world attention to children, she raised the profile of the challenges they face.”

internally very good indeed with a little uniform toning to stock and one or two minor marks.


First edition, bound from original parts. A tongue-in-cheek account of the “follies” of the marquis d’horsay, a man of fashion who, with his aristocractic friends, indulges in all the frivolous pursuits of the day. These include gambling, horse-racing, and drinking to excess. Sadleir remarks on the surprising fact that the book was published during the lifetime of many of the clearly recognizable figures who are satirized within.
