From the back:
Born in London in 1890, Angela Thirkell was the author of more than thirty books. While her beguiling novels of town and country life are well-loved by a legion of devoted readers, her one biography, "Tribute for Harriette", remains almost unknown today. Recounting the career of the Regency courtesan Harriette Wilson, whose paramours included the Duke of Argyll, the Duke of Wellington, and the Marquis of Worcester,Thirkell's 1936 study is characterized by the deft style and sophisticated observation of manners that distinguish her fiction.
