Those Remarkable Cunards: Emerald and Nancy.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Fielding, Daphne.

Publisher Information:
Atheneum,, New York:: 1968..

A Fine tight copy in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with wear to the heel of the spine. This is the biographical study of two very powerful women...the mother, Emerald (Maud Burke) and her daughter Nancy Cunard, wife and daughter of Sir Bache Cunard of the famous shipping line of the same name. While they both were influential in their own social spheres exercising taste, assurance, boundless zeal and an over-riding interest in the arts, they eventually became estranged over Nancy's involvement with African-American men and the cause for Negro equality long before the civil rights movement. Both women became the models of numerous paintings, sculptures and fictional characters in novels. Nancy joined the expatriate coimmunity in Paris in the 1920s not only as a socialite but also as a poet, publisher and participant in the cultural explosion that was Paris in the twenties.
