Love in a Cold Climate, MITFORD, Nancy
98 7331 MITFORD, Nancy Love in a Cold Climate
Hardcover Folio Society: London; c1949, 1992; First Edition Thus 242 pages Near Fine 
This delightful edition has an introduction by Pauline Tennant and seventeen black and white plates by Roland Pym. Wonderful wraparound pictorial binding, clean, no binding problems. A lovely copy. No dust wrapper as issued, publisher's slipcase lightly soiled and sunned at edges.; "Love in a Cold Climate" is the sequel to, and has the same narrator as "The Pursuit of Love". Fanny's tale turns to Polly Hampton, the outstandingly beautiful, wealthy daughter of Lady Montdore, Lady Montdore's devoted attendant, Boy Dougdale--the Lecherous Lecturer, and the Canadian cousin of the Montdore's, Cedric. It is a tale of sly poking fun, charm, and absorption. Polly is a contemporary of Fanny and Linda's, with even fewer choices to pursue in the game of love and marriage. Like "The Pursuit of Love", this novel is robust in the amazing supporting cast, with the charmingly eccentric Uncle Davey at the forefront. Basis for the 1980 and the 2001 television mini-series.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, and AT email discussion list and by several others. This title recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group. 'I have 3 copies of Love in a Cold Climate now...'
