THE EVE OF SAINT VENUS..
London: Sidgwick and Jackson, [1964].. Octavo,boards. First edition. Inscribed by Burgess on the title page: "very kind regards / -- Anthony Burgess." The author began his prolific writing career in the early 1960s after a doctor told him he had a brain tumor and only a year to live. At the end of the year he had five novels finished -- and many more to go. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-56. A fine copy in near fine dust jacket with some age-darkening, mostly internal. Accompanied by an autograph note signed (ANs) by Burgess dated 12 October 1964, on a postcard addressed to Oswell Blakeston (pseudonym of Henry Joseph Hasslacher, 1907-1985), British artist, photographer, and writer, thanking him for an invitation to an exhibition which Burgess and his wife look forward to seeing.
