JOHNSON B.S. (1964.)

£250.00  [First Edition]

Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

First edition. 8vo., original black cloth, dust jacket by Philip Thompson. London, Constable.

The author's second book, playing in Sternean style with literary form ('telling stories is telling lies'), with windows cut into several pages allowing the reader a preview of the following text, a trick these days causing real problems for users of Kindles and such devices who might wish to read this on screen. Johnson plays with the narration, switching from third to second person, and includes at the end a few pages of authorial exegesis on what he was trying to achieve. A fine copy in dust jacket, slightly browned on the spine.
