About this Item: Andre Deutsch, London, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. First Impression of Rhys's prequel to Charlotte Brontė's Jane Eyre, reconstructing the life of Bertha Cosway, the madwoman of Thornfield Hall. Small 8vo: 190pp. Publisher's finely woven tangerine cloth, spine stamped in gilt; beautifully illustrated dust jacket by Eric Thomas, priced 21s. A Fine copy (tight, strong binding, probabaly unread; clean pages free from inscription; fresh, crisp jacket), barring few isolated spots of foxing to page edges. A superb copy of Rhys's brief, beautiful masterpiece. Wide Sargasso Sea tells the extended story of Rochester's visit to the West Indies to marry Cosway, a white Creole heiress. "According to a letter Rhys sent to Francis Wyndham [who wrote the book's introduction] in 1958, the previous year it had 'clicked in her head' that this material [narrative sketches under the vague title of 'Creole,' about Rhys's memories of the West Indies] could in fact be turned into a novel about 'the first Mrs. Rochester,' the shadowy West Indian character in Jane Eyre. Rhys wanted the connection with Brontė's novel, she wrote, because it was 'that particular mad Creole I want to write about.' In the same letter she proffers the title 'Wide Sargasso Sea' . . . It took eight more years of writing and rewriting, punctuated by doubts and anxiety, by the death of her husband, Max Hamer, and by two heart attacks, before Jean Rhys's final novel, Wide Sargasso Sea, widely regarded as her finest work, was published in 1966, two months after her 76th birthday." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

Jean Rhys (1966) Wide Sargasso Sea , UK first edition, first printing, published by Andre Deutsch. Signed and inscribed by Rhys on the title page For John & Teresa [signature] Best wishes for a Happy New Year .

This copy, along with other inscribed books to the couple sold at Sotheby s on 12 July 2016 for GBP 6,000. George Melly, the writer and jazz singer, and his wife, Diana, became close friends of Jean Rhys in her later years.
