Comments & Further Information

This is a First UK edition hardback.  The book was originally published in America under the title “Max Jamison.”  The book is in near fine condition for its age.  The only flaws are a small quarter inch stain at the bottom of the rear free end paper and at the very  bottom edge of the pages there is a series of light marks which do not encroach on the page faces.  These marks are quite difficult to see on the photographs, but they are there.   The dust jacket is in a very good condition for its age, still shows the price and has some small sympathetic internal repairs.

SYNOPSIS:   “A pungent account of the career of one critic in which the author savagely probes into the critical process through the book’s central character.”
