London: Eyre Methuen, 1977. Very Good / Very Good. Item #11183
London: Eyre Methuen, 1977 (copyrighted by Isherwood in 1976). First Edition. Signed by Isherwood without inscription on full title. Octavo (24x16x2cm); 252pp. Jacket with young Isherwood photographed by Humphrey Spender on the front; older Isherwood drawn by his lover Don Bachardy on the back. Brownish-plum boards with gilt spine stamping. Mustard topstain.
Jacket sunned down spine and along edges, with some rubbing along top. Boards are sturdy and square. Binding is sound and pages unmarked.
Published without an index, which means that every page provides the surprise of running into W.H. Auden, or E.M. Forster, or a model for the protagonist of "A Single Man," or for all the characters in "Cabaret"—as well as all the Brits, Germans, Americans, socialites, sexualists, and superstars in between.
