Quarto, black & grey cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 240 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing; in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear and foxing. From dust jacket: After 1945, Europe, England, and America experienced a decade of revival and reconstruction, and a renaissance of creative artistic impulses that war had stilled. In those years Cecil Beaton met and talked with many of the most renowned people in the world: writers, actors, dancers, philosophers, artists, critics, composers, and statesmen. With pen, camera, or brush, he recorded his favorite impressions of them. Some were old friends of many years, others were met for the first time with the renewal of peace. In Italy Mr. Beaton photographed Bernard Berenson and Max Beerbohm while he discussed with them trends of art in an era long ago. In Paris he talked with left bank intellectuals Cocteau, Gide, Malraux, Camus, and Sartre; writers Colette and Gertrude Stein; and the redoubtable Picasso. From America and England he describes in a deft, penetrating style the faces and personalities of members of the royal family, Churchill, Eliot, E. M. Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Olivier, Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, James Thurber, the Sitwells, the Alsop brothers, Brooks Atkinson, Walter Kerr, the Lunts, Margot Fonteyn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Tanaquil Le Clercq, Balanchine, Edward R. Morrow, Mary McCarthy, Marianne Moore, Ivy Compton Burnett, Lionel Trilling, Siobhan McKenna, Somerset Maugham, and Benjamin Britten, among many others. In every instance Mr. Beaton has presented his subjects as he saw them, and the precision of his word pictures makes them as candid as the nuances usually recorded only by the camera eye. The result is a brilliant combination of irony, humor and honesty. Of particular interest also are the author's comments on designing for the theatre and ballet, and on the scope and limitations of photography in American and in England.
