The Life and Death of Rochester Sneath
London: Hamish Hamilton, 1980.
First edition thus.
Illustrated by Nicolas Bentley, this marvellously funny collection of thinly-veiled insults to England's Establishment takes the form of letters from a fictitious minor Public School headmaster, asking advice from the good and the great.
Some of the real-life correspondents were not fooled, but many replied in the same insufferably pompous vein. Hilarious.
Near Fine in near fine dust-jacket. Hardcover.
