THE COMPLETE MEMOIRS OF GEORGE SHERSTON
Memoirs of a Fox-hunting Man / Sherston's Progress / Memoirs of an Infantry Officer.

By Siegfried Sassoon
Illustrated by Lynton Lamb & John Lawrence.

The Folio Society, London. 1993.
3 Volumes: 244 pp. + 290 pp. + 171 pp. | 9" high x 6" wide
With b/w line illustrations.

3 Volume boxed set. Light green pictorial cloth covers with red grounds to lettering on spines. Top page edges red. Red slipcase with gilt titles to sides.

CONDITION: AS NEW.
Set is in unopened publisher's shrink wrap. Pristine throughout.

A scarce unopened set of Sassoon's 'fictitious' autobiography (first published 1928-30-36) in which the only truly fictional things are the names of the characters. Sassoon himself is represented by Sherston. A comparison of the Sherston memoirs to Sassoon's later, undiluted autobiographical trilogy (The Old Century, The Weald of Youth, and Siegfried's Journey) shows their strict similarity, and it is generally accepted that all six books constitute a composite portrait of the author, and of his life as a young man. (Sassoon remarked, however, that his alter-ego personified only one-fifth of his actual personality. Unlike his author, Sherston has no poetic inclinations; nor does he deal with homosexuality - an act which was illegal at the time Sassoon was writing.)
