Lady Anne Blunt - A Biography
By H.V.F. Winstone. (new, soft bound edition)
Although much has been written about her tumultuous marriage to the problematic, unfaithful poet Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, this is the first true biography about a remarkably talented, courageous, and long-suffering Englishwoman. In her quest to obtain flawless desertbred bloodstock for Crabbet Park, the Blunts venture to Baghdad and later deep into the Najd Desert, where Lady Anne endured very real dangers that few women of her times would even dared to contemplate.
The author captures the essence of Lady Anne’s exceptional life and relates her adventures and travels with the same enviable dexterity and comprehension that he conveys when describing her often tormented struggle with her adulterous husband. The book’s 381 pages include pictures of a number of Lady Anne’s wonderful watercolours and some b&w photographs.
