Short Description

First Australian edition published by Hutchinson in conjunction with Victor Gollancz in 1977.

A special autobiography of the writer who would become a legend with Rebecca. Ownership signature back of half title otherwise a very good copy.

Octavo, 173 pages with images from photographs from the family album.

She writes of her early life from the time she was a small child up to the age of 25 when by then she was married and had completed her first novels. Her grandfather was the recognised artist and writer George du Maurier and her father Gerald a noted actor …. They were well to do ... so Daphne had a pretty fancy early life … London, Paris etc but it was not until the family moved to Cornwall that she found what she was searching for in life … and the rest is well in the words in more ways than one.
