Book Description Hutchinson & Co, London, 1974. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket unclipped, small tears to edges. Brown cloth with bright brown titling on spine. Name on ffep. Frontis plate. 288 pages including index. b/w photographs clean and tight. The sensation of Mavis Wheeler's trial for shooting her lover, a peer, in a country cottage in Wiltshire has now faded, although mention of it will still bring instant recall to many. But newspaper reports of the case - extraordinary as the circumstances were - never revealed more than part of her story. Roderic Owen, in collaboration with her son Tristan, has now written a moving biography, which shows her as a warm and impulsive woman, the friend and confidante of many of the most fascinating people of the 1930's, the glory and the victim of a social system now vanished. Mavis always claimed she had gypsy blood. In fact she came from an humble background and started work in a mill at 14; but she soon found herself moving in a very different social circle. She married Horace de Vere Cole, England's greatest practical joker, and was for many years the tempestuous mistress of Augustus John (whose beautiful portrait of her is reproduced on the wrapper) . She married Mortimer Wheeler and was divorced. Then came the shock of her trial, gleefully billed in the papers as `The Love Court Drama of the Century'. Mavis kept every possible scrap of information about her life - all the newspaper reports, the documents, briefs, opinions, glosses and counter-glosses. And she made notes all of the time, even in prison - scribbling away on lavatory paper, or under bedclothes, to record events and her reactions to them while they were actually happening. `Beautiful and Beloved' (the words are from her Times obituary) is an evocative, nostalgic book, throwing much new light on Horace de Vere Cole and the ever-intriguing circle of Augustus John. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 136969
