As described by Christopher de Lotbinière's Rare Books

The Blessing by Nancy Mitford. London: Hamish Hamilton, 1951. First UK printing. With an excellent jacket design by the irrepressible Cecil Beaton, this is the rare first edition of one of Nancy Mitford's more sought-after farces, set chiefly in postwar Paris. When a society beauty makes a hasty marriage to an enigmatic Frenchman, she is whirled into a series of cultural blunders, aided and abetted by her mischievous son, the "blessing" of the title. Book and jacket show slight wear.
