London: Royal Palace Hotel, [circa 1930].
Booklet, stapled in wrappers (20.5 x 13 cm.),  pages. Illustrated throughout. FIRST EDITION. A delightful short disquisition on a good dinner as a metaphor for a good life issued as a promotional item for the grand restaurant Lucullus in the Royal Palace Hotel. Described by Osbert Sitwell as the original "bright young thing", Beverley Nichols was a prolific author of poetry, novels, and non-fiction, perhaps best known for his large body of charming works on the subjects of gardening and country life. Some light soiling internally; bumping to corners. In color decorated wrappers. Very scarce. [OCLC locates no copies].
