A Start In Life

London: Cape, 1981

8vo, pp. 176. Original grey boards, lettered in gilt to spine. Small bookplate to front pastedown. Illustrated dustwrapper. A fine copy in an all but fine dustwrapper, the remains of new price label over printed price to front flap the only blemish.

First edition of the author's first novel. PUBLISHER TOM MASCHLER'S COPY.

Subjected to a late-notice price change, this book is almost always found price-clipped by the publishers. This copy -- the copy of Brookner's publisher Tom Maschler -- was never offered for sale, and is consequently intact.

A fine copy.
