This is an auction for THE LIFE OF KATHERINE MANSFIELD by Antony Alpers.

"Many previously unpublished aspects of Katherine Mansfield's life are revealed in this biography, including the circumstances of her disastrous one-day marriage to George Bowden, her elopement with her girlhood friend Garnet Trowell, her influence on Virginia Woolf, her tortured friendship with D.H.Lawrence, and her final search for truth in the teachings of the Russian mystic G I Gurdjieff."

From Wikipedia:

"Katherine Mansfield (14 October 1888 - 9 January 1923) was a prominent New Zealand modernist writer of short fiction. She is widely considered one of the best short story writers of her period. A number of her works, including "Miss Brill", "Prelude", "The Garden Party", "The Doll's House", and later works such as "The Fly", are frequently collected in short story anthologies. Mansfield also proved ahead of her time in her adoration of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, and incorporated some of his themes and techniques into her writing. The fact that Mansfield died relatively young only added to her legacy."

Hardback 1980.
