1 3010 COLEGATE, Isabel Shooting Party, The
Hardcover Viking Press: NY; 1981; First US Edition Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
Previous owner's circular blind stamp on free endpaper. Spine ends and bottom corners bumped, vertical crease on spine that does not damage binding. No binding problems, pages clean and bright. Unclipped dust wrapper, spine sunned, lightly rubbed and edgeworn. ; Basis for movie of the same name. Set in 1913 on the eve of the Great War. Sir Randolph Nettleby, owner of an estate in Oxfordshire invites a wide array of guests for the biggest shoot of the season. 'An army of servants and gamekeepers has rehearsed the intricate age-old ritual of the house and hunt. The gentlemen are falling into the prescribed mode of fellowship and good-humored sporting rivalry. The fashionable ladies are exchanging the latest gossip. Everything about this splendid weekend would seem a perfect affirmation of the privileges and certainties of Edwardian country life.

And yet, as Isabel Colegate so elegantly dramatizes, it is not. The social and moral code of this set is under siege from within and without. Competition beyond the bounds of sportsmanship, revulsion at the slaughter of animals, anger at the inequities of class -- these and other forces are about to rise up and challenge the social peace, a peace that can hold only a brief while longer.'; Image is actual copy on offer. 
Price: 12.50 USD
