Very Good / Very Good. Item #11183
London: Eyre Methuen, 1977 (copyrighted by Isherwood in 1976). First Edition. Signed on title page. 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. Brown boards with gilt spine stamping. Mustard topstain.
Jacket spine and edges have been sunned into a paler, somewhat greener shade of the original dark mustard ground. Both unclipped jacket and textblock otherwise impeccable.
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.
