West of Suez signed by John Osborne, 1st/1st, 1971
London: Faber & Faber, (1971).
SIGNED. First edition. This is a near fine copy. The soft cover is characteristically plain of early Faber & Faber paperbacks and suffers from a very light yellowing at the top and rear faces. The rear face suffers from very mild rubbing by the spine; the top edge suffers from slight rubbing too. The text blocks are bright and white. The author’s signature is on the free endpaper and in black ink without inscription. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a fine, signed title.
West of Suez revealed a measure of sympathy for a type of British colonizer whose day has waned and antipathy for his ideological opponents, who are made to appear confused and neurotic.
