Siegfried Sassoon’s annotated copy of a catalogue of a London exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.

Card wrappers, discoloured and stained to rear. Sassoon’s cipher book label to the verso of the front cover. Collates, pp6; xlv plates; pp40 text; [pp] 8 adverts. The plates include paintings by William Orpen, Sir John Lavery and Howard Somerville.

Sassoon has annotated the catalogue entries about 40 times in pencil with crosses in the margin and around 15-20 verbal notes. De Glehn is ‘good’, but Cecil Jameson’s Nancy gets a ‘No’ and to Ambrose McEvoy’s portrait of The Duchess of Westminster ‘Never’. Francis Dodd’s portrait of Sir Russell Bencraft wins approval - ‘very good’ and Henry Winslow’s portrait of Wilfred Walter, simply ‘Boys’ with the same annotation to Ernest Borough Johnson’s image of David Hutcheson. George Coates’ Portrait of a Housekeeper and two children’ is annotated by Sassoon, ‘My God’.
