More Information
John James Osborne was born in London on 12 December 1929. His reputation is as a playwright. His best, and most successful, work was early on in his career. This was evidently enough to carry him through his life and he remained a leading light for the rest of his life. His most well known work is probably his first, the original angry young man tale, Look Back in Anger. Readers are well served by a multitude of reprints and paperbacks, all available at very reasonable prices. Collectors will have to stump up some money though. The early 1st editions, in their original dust jackets are relatively expensive, though by no means unattainable for those with a reasonable budget. Association copies and scripts etc signed by actors and colleagues are especially sought after and do attract a considerable premium, depending of course on the signature and nature of the association.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
