Autograph quotation signed: "Love is no more and no less/ than the recognition of vitality/ outside oneself./ Compton Mackenzie" in blue ink. 1 page, 4½x3½. Compton Mackenzie (1883-1972) was a writer of fiction, biography, histories and memoir, best remembered for his work as a cultural commentator, raconteur, and life-long Scottish nationalist; he was one of the co-founders in 1928 of the Scottish National Party. He is best known for his two comedic novels set in Scotland, Whisky Galore (1947) and The Monarch of the Glen (1941) which became successful film and television series; however, Mackenzie published almost a hundred books on different subjects, including ten volumes of autobiography titled My Life and Times (1963-1971), history, biography, literary criticism, satires, apologia, children's stories, poetry etc. Although born and raised in England, Mackenzie went to great lengths to trace the steps of his ancestors back to his spiritual home in the Highlands, spending much of his life there and building a house on the island of Barra in the 1930s where he found inspiration and creative solitude. Toned. Corners rounded. Pencil notes on verso in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
