Small date on ffep and DJ mildly edgeworn with one small closed tear at spine edge. Part of a large estate of an avid reader and collector of books who obviously read every one of them, the clue being that they all have some amount of marginalia and underlining and the date read on the flypage. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 666 pages

Pincher, Chapman
London Sidgwick & Jackson 1982 0283988495 / 9780283988493 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
In the Spring of 1886 a strange young man of independent means wandered into the Cafe Royal close to Piccadilly Circus. The Cafe Royal was then the center of literary and artistic life in London, and the haunt of royalty, aristocrats and eccentrics. So enthralled was St John Terrapin by what he witnessed that he made the Cafe Royal the centre of his own long life, becoming its most regular devotee, recording all he observed in an accumulated mass of diaries giving an absorbing description of writers from Oscar Wilde to D. H. Lawrence: painters from James MacNeil to Augustus John: journalists from Frank Harris to Hannen Swaffer fascinating ladies from Lillie Langtry to Virginia Woolf. He was also a first hand witness to the extraordinary events of Wilde's downfall with Lord Alfred Douglas; the sexual peccadilloes of the Prince of Wales; the mysterious case of Jack the Ripper; the eccentricities of the Bloomsbury Set; the dramatic abdication of Edward VIII -- all make their appearance in the fascinating world of St John Terrapin.
