London : Secker and Warburg, 1929.

Crown 4to (27cm); (78) pp; One of the Limited Edition of 125 copies printed on vellum paper and for sale in England, although this copy is neither numbered or signed (were any?); original ochre cloth lettered in gilt to front board; illustrated throughout with facsimile ‘hand-written’ slogans and drawings by the author, many of them full-page and with his captions; boards slightly soiled. Printed dedication to EM Forster. A very good copy.

Considered a risqué publication when first published the Missionary’s Notebook is a rather camp tale of the Rev. Littlejohn and two female companions who embark on a missionary expedition into the jungle. Tennant was a British socialite known for his decadent lifestyle. The the brightest of the 'Bright Young People', Tennant was the youngest son of Scottish peer Edward Tennant, 1st Baron Glenconner, and the former Pamela Wyndham, one of the Wyndham sisters and of The Souls clique. His mother was also a cousin of Lord Alfred Douglas (1870–1945), Oscar Wilde's lover and a sonneteer. During the 1920s and 1930s he was romantically involved with the poet Siegfried Sassoon.
