London: Jarrolds, 1932. First Edition. Illustrated. Touch of foxing to endpapers and cloth tape reinforcement to rear hinge and the inside hinge of the front free endpaper, else near fine copy with some minor fading to the spine in a very good lightly dust soiled and spotted dust jacket with internal tape reinforcement and some small tears and chips. The astute and charismatic memoirs of dress designer Lady Duff “Lucille” Gordon including a compelling chapter devoted to her (and her husband’s) survival of the Titanic disaster. Lady Gordon’s dress designing career and social life reads like a who’s who of early 20th century celebrity, royalty, and international diplomacy with details of her work with such Hollywood and Broadway stars as Lillian Langtry, Ellen Terry, Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Mary Pickford, Betty Blythe, Pauline Frederick, the Ziegfeld Follies, as well as designing England’s Princess Margaret’s trousseau for her marriage to the Crown Prince of Sweden.
