Jonathon Cape, London - first edition ISBN:0224013491, 1977. Hardcover, 8¾" x 5½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, pocket and barcode. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, illustrated endpapers (Aphra Behn's spy report), 15 b&w photographs, 6 figures in the text, notes, books consulted, and index. Virginia Woolf wrote that Aphra Behn was the first English-woman to earn her living by writing; for not only did she become one of the most successful dramatists of the Restoration theatre, writing with lively wit and sexual candour, she had earlier been a spy for Charles II, and a imprisoned debtor. Maureen Duffy has sifted through the tarnished image of Aphra Behn from the muddle of sensational legend and reveals her as a pioneer who opened up a whole field of literature to women.
