More Information
Muriel Spark, born 1918, is a highly regarded novelist and short story writer. She has always written superbly, with great elegance and style. She is best known for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, also the subject of a very successful film. Naturally, she is also very collectable. As always the earliest novels are the most valuable, the later works are all available at more modest prices. Generally, English editions precede and are also of greater interest to collectors. Anyone wishing to put together a full set of her first edition in dust jacket should be able to do so without a huge budget. Many of the books had very striking dustwrappers making them even more attractive to collectors.
