Wide Sargasso Sea. André Deutsch, 1966
8vo, first edition, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON THE TITLE PAGE, original orange-red cloth, dust-jacket, jacket price-clipped
First edition of the author's finest novel -- a prequel to Jane Eyre planned since before the war -- and the one which re-established her reputation after a long period of neglect and personal hardship. Set in part in the West Indies shortly after the abolition of slavery, Wide Sargasso Sea tells the story of how the young girl who became Bertha Rochester is driven mad by the conflicting pressures that a colonial and patriarchal world impose upon her.
