    Robin de la Condamine (6 November – 11 January ) was an English actor who used the stage name Robert Farquharson. Harold Acton wrote that he was "our last great actor" in the tradition of Henry Irving and that he was known for his "emphatic stammer" and his dandyish ways.. Of Spanish descent, Condamine was born in London and attended the Rugby School. In this classic memoir Harold Acton offers a witty and vivid account of the first thirty-five years of his life (): from a boyhood among the dilettanti in Florence before the First World War, through his friendships with some of the great writers of his generation in Oxford and Paris, to his discovery of a spiritual home in Peking.
