The Last of Mr. Norris
New York: William Morrow and Company,, 1935. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine black on red ground. Housed in a black flat back cloth box. Spine rolled, head of spine and rear hinge slightly worn, boards and edges lightly foxed, sporadic minor foxing to contents. An excellent copy. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "E. M. Forster, with love from Christoper Isherwood." The two authors were travelling together in Germany, with their respective partners, when the book was published. A superb presentation copy of the novel first published in England as Mr Norris Changes Trains. Having been introduced to Isherwood by William Plomer in 1931, Forster became the younger writer's mentor. Forster later entrusted Isherwood with the manuscript of Maurice (written in 1910?-13), with instructions to have it published in the United States after his death.
