Cecil Beaton's Quail in Aspic
Quail in Aspic
London: Wiedenfeld & Nicolson, 1962.
Beaton's rare society parody, in a very good jacket.
Beaton adored to dress himself and friends as mythical members of a supposed displaced aristocracy, complete with elaborate pedigrees and
supporting photo histories, made funnier by mingling in with his real society friends.
Hardcover, with slight foxing to front edge.
