Paperback. New. Lesley Blanch, writer, artist and adventuress, called herself a romantic traveller; her appetite for the exotic colours all her books. The first, The Wilder Shores of Love, became a worldwide bestseller. Emotions, she insisted, can be transposed to places or countries and in this she was her own best example. Her guiding passion for Russia began in childhood; later she found the 'eternal Slav' in Romain Gary, Franco-Slav diplomat and writer, and with him embarked on a series of postings from Bulgaria to Los Angeles. After their divorce she transferred her obsession to Turkey, Persia and the Islamic East where she travelled widely, before eventually settling on the Cote d'Azur. Lesley Blanch loved mystery; vivid yet elusive, she hid as much as she revealed and created a legend about her early past. In this first biography, Anne Boston draws on publishers' archives, unpublished journals and conversations with those who knew her, to piece together the portrait of an escapist for whom 'character plus opportunity equals fortune'., Paperback. New. Lesley Blanch takes the reader on a uniquely romantic journey to the settings where lovers have come together for a moment, a night or a lifetime. Chosen carefully from those places in her travels where she has come upon a story that has fired the imagination, Blanch writes of Nelson and Lady Hamilton's scandalous affair conducted in a modest house near Wimbledon; Balzac's Parisian love-nest created for his Polish inamorata; the estate of Woronince in the steppes of southern Russia from where Liszt and Princess Carolyne Sayn-Wittgenstein had to flee; and the house overlooking Lake Lucerne where Wagner and Cosima von Bulow came together. She conjures Sultan Murad's room in the Seraglio and tells the story of Aurelie Picard, whose pavilion of the heart was deep in the Saharan desert. Replete with drama, history and passion, Pavilions of the Heart is a seductive and lyrical glimpse at the places where love has reigned., Collins, 1965. Hardcover. Good/ACCEPTABLE. 1965. 192 pages.

Pages are fresh and crisp. From the Dust Jacket flap: "STILL MISSING is the first full biography to analyze Earhart as part of the history of women and American feminism. A heroine of her era, Earhart is a figure of inspiration for women today. Ware explains this popularity by placing Earhart in the social and cultural context of the 1920s and 1930s, a time when technology boomed and the miracle inventions of cars and planes creating unparalleled optimism for the future... By her widely publicized accomplishments and nontraditional lifestyle, Earhart suggested that women could live life on their own terms and overcome conventional barriers... By emphasizing Earhart's multiple roles as aviator, woman, and popular heroine, Susan Ware has found the reasons for Earhart's enduring appeal." From the rear cover: "'At last, a fully researched life and times of Amelia Earhart. Susan Ware has given us a thoughtful, provocative, manifold read. Every woman and every activist will enjoy this book.' -- Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of ELEANOR ROOSEVELT.". First Printing of the First Edition.. Hard Cover.

Amelia Earhart was first reported missing on 2 July 1937. Despite the ongoing fascination with her disappearance, Susan Ware argues that key aspects of Amelia Earhart's life are still missing. This biography analyzes Earhart as part of the history of women and feminism. A heroine of her era, Earhart is a figure of inspiration for women today. While loving adventure, Earhart saw aviation as liberating for women. Ware also portrays Earhart as a central figure in the development of popular culture in the 20th century. With her husband, George Putnam, she learned how to use the media to promote herself in order to keep on flying. Consciously acting as a role model, she used her popularity to broaden horizons for women. aerospace,biographies,engineering,feminist theory,history,politics and social sciences,specific groups,women,women's studies Women's Studies, W W Norton & Co Inc
