Published by Jonathan Cape & The Book Society, 1956. 1st edition. Octavo. Original red cloth gilt. Dustwrapper. Pp. 320. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR: ‘This copy belongs to Jean Mossop. Elizabeth Jane Howard’. Mossop was the secretary of Jonathan Cape. Howard had left her first husband, the naturalist and writer Peter Scott to become a writer herself. After her short-lived second marriage she met the novelist Kingsley Amis whilst she was helping organise the Cheltenham Literary Festival and the two were married for 18 years. ‘The Long View’ was Howard’s highly-rated second novel and signed copies are very scarce. The journalist and novelist Angela Lambert remarked: “Why ‘The Long View’ isn’t recognised as one of the great novels of the 20th century I will never know.” Boards bright and clean. Occasional foxing. A very good, at least, tight copy in very slightly rubbed and faded, near fine, bright, clean dustwrapper which is not price-clipped.
