More Information
Rebecca West, 1892 to 1983, was an English essayist, novelist, journalist and travel writer. Her fiction is often dark and forceful with more than an influence of Freud's early thinking. In 1959 she was made a Dame.

Early first editions in original dustwrappers are rare books but not as expensive as perhaps one might assume. They are certainly within reach of the collector on a modest to reasonable budget. The later works get much cheaper and are readily available to those with internet access. The bibliography is a little inelegant due to the constant switching of English and American priority. Our checklist is in order of precedence.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
