Beautiful and Beloved - The Life of Mavis de Vere Cole

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The sensation of Mavis Wheeler's trial for shooting her lover, a peer, in a country cottage in Wiltshire has now faded, although mention of it will still bring instant recall to many. But newspaper reports of the case - extraordinary as the circumstances were - never revealed more than part of her story.
Roderic Owen, in collaboration with her son Tristan, has now written a moving biography, which shows her as a warm and impulsive woman, the friend and confidante of many of the most fascinating people of the 1930's, the glory and the victim of a social system now vanished.

Hardback book in very good condition, corners shelf worn. Comes with a very good dust jacket, price clipped. Corners and spine edges shelf worn, small closed tear to left hand corner of the back cover. Several closed and open tears to the top edge of the spine. Previous owners address sticker on front free end paper.
