Notes

First edition, first impression, of the author's only novel, and most uncommon in such nice condition. The Bell Jar, released on 14 January 1963, just five weeks before Plath died, was published pseudonymously by Plath to avoid offending her mother, who appears in the novel thinly-disguised. It was not published under Plath's name until 1967.
