Long before Spark published her first novel she wrote a number of literary critical or biographical works including William Wordsworth, Mary Shelley, Emily Bronte, John Masefield and John Henry Newman as her subjects. It is rare to find early Spark titles inscribed and in dust jacket.
Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine in red. With dust jacket.
Head and foot of spine slightly bumped, slight foxing to top edge, occasional creases to leaves, occasional browning, dust jacket frayed with minor loss to extremities, minor closed cut to spine, otherwise a very good copy.
