David Ponsonby, two limited editions, very good condition:

1. Fugitive papers, 2012, nr. CLXVI of a 100 numbered copies.

David Ponsonby's wartime experiences are recounted in 'Fugitive Papers'. Assembled here are chapters of autobiography written by David Ponsonby at various times in his life, which, together with his war memoir, 'Scenes of a Life', published in 2013, amount almost to a Life.
Most pieces were drafted in the years immediately following the war, when he was encouraged to write his memoirs by his friend, Bill Simpson - Squadron Leader William Simpson DFC of 12 Squadron - who had been diverted by many of these stories when in hospital in Roanne, recovering from injuries sustained in the Battle of France, 1940. As Simpson acknowledged in his own wartime best-seller, 'One of Our Pilots is Safe', David's storytelling - his "sickbed entertainment" - had helped keep him alive.

2. Scenes of a Lifetime, 201, nr. 40 of a 100 numbered copies.

This second book is devoted to the years of David Ponsonby's childhood and youth in Oporto, of his studies in Paris as a musician at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Musique, under Alfred Cortot, Paul Dukas and Nadia Boulanger, and his experiences after the war in England, France, and finally in Portugal, to which he returned in the mid-1950s to take up a new-found career as a painter. Illustrated by b/w. drawings & photo's.
