1 Coats, Peter Of Generals and Gardens - The Autobiography of Peter Coats
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1976 0297771450 / 9780297771456 Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped (Fine apart from light creasing to back). x + 326 pages. 17 illustrations. All his life Peter Coats has possessed an outstanding talent for making friends and this book is full of them. From his earliest years at the impressive Sundrum, the Coats home in Scotland, through Eton to the halcyon days of the thirties, when there were constant parties at the great country houses and in London; from the hectic war period as Lord Wavell's ADC, to his post-war period emergence as a leading garden expert, Peter Coats has met many interesting people. Here he describes them all. World figures like Winston Churchill, de Gaulle and Gandhi, worldly figures like Louise de Vilmorin and Lady Cunard, figures of intelligentsia like Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson; the talented, the beautiful, the royal, are introduced against the ever-changing backcloth of many different countries.
