"Portrait of a Marriage", by Nigel Nicholson, son of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicholson, the account of his parents' relationship.

This is the story of two people who married for love and whose love deepened with every passing year, although each was constantly and by mutual consent unfaithful to the other. Both loved people of their own sex, but not exclusively. Their marriage not only survived infidelity, sexual incompatibility, and long absences, but became stronger as a result.

A famous relationship of the 1920s, the core of the 'Bloomsbury Set', and two people who must have done much to pave the way for acceptance of gay relationships that we are fortunate to have today.

220 pages lavishly illustrated with 60 black and white photographs, drawings, letters, and 40 colour plates, and 40 sepia pictures, covering the period from 1890 to 1970.

8" x 11" hardback with dustjacket, near-perfect condition, appears never to have been read, no shelf-wear.
