The Mitford Family Album by Sophia Murphy Sidgwick, 160 pp, £1. 5, November 1985, ISBN 0 283 99115 1. One mid-morning in the mid-Fifties, I came across Ken Tynan on Fleet Street, hurrying towards the Evening Standard offices, then around the corner in Shoe Lane. I tagged along as he explained, between puffs, that there had been an unfortunate misprint in a piece he had written about Orson Welles.

  • For those familar with the famous Mitford family,this book is a fascinating
    peek into their world through black and white photographs. There are
    photographs of the homes they lived in,paintings/drawings of various family
    members,and photos of all the family members themselves and probably the
    most interesting(my opinion)is a photo near the middle of the book(the pages
    have no numbers!)of Lady Redesdale in her bedroom,sitting-in bed-wearing bed
    clothes!?!? I did not expect to see that-very unusual. all of the photos have a
    running commentary which includes photos some of the girls took themselves,
    like Nancy-for instance-and a page from her album when she was a, "girl guide" in
    1923. I own several books about this family so,I have seen many photos.
    I would say,as far as this book, about 80% of these photos,I have NOT seen
    before. This is a nice addition for any Mitford family fan collection.

  • If you are Mitford mad this book will be a wonderful addition of visuals of the Mitford family for your Mitford bookshelf.

  • This book does two things that most modern biographies fail to do. The first is that it is the story of a family played out in pictures and the Mitford girls were most definitely a family that is worth finding out more about, their eccentricities and talent made them one of the most interesting and infamous families of their generation. The second is the author (Sophia Murphy) is the daughter of the youngest of the Mitford girls, Debo the Duchess of Devonshire and so not only has unlimited access to the photo Albums of her aunt's but also lends authority to the family stories by having an inside knowledge of what went on.
    The Mitford girls were born between 1904 and 1920 to the third Lord Redesdale and his wife. Nancy, the eldest grew up to be an author who mercilessly lampooned her upbringing, friends and family in her various novels, the two most autobiographical being the Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate. These are well worth reading by the way if you want to understand this book and the family.
    Of the other five girls (and one son) two went on to be famous supporters of facism, one a communist, another a Duchess and the least controversial managed a farm. As at May 1992 two of the daughters (Diana and Debo) are still alive and still as alert and intelligent as ever.
    There have been numerous biographies written about the family and various daughters over the year but this album is lovely to see the family in pictures. A double page is given over to a series of photos gleaned from various albums and telling a bit of a story about a particular time in the Mitford's life. It isn't quite like opening a family album - it is full of gossip and information which makes it more of a cross between a light biography and picture book.
    If you have a Mitford fascination or want to see more of this family this book is well worth picking up. All the printing is in black and white - makes sense since nearly all the photos have been taken in black and white anyway. It gives an insight into the privilege, wealth and eccentricities of a family of famously talented peer's daughters from the period mostly between the two wars.
