Duffy (Jonathan Cape, 1980)


Notes on this edition: First edition – London: Jonathan Cape, 1980. £4.95. Print run: 4000.

Julian Barnes’s first book publication under the pseudonym Dan Kavanagh. Published the same year as Barnes’s first literary novel Metroland (1980).

Note in the images that Cape price clipped the front flap of the dust jacket and affixed price tags of £8.95 and £9.95. Both jackets were placed on first edition texts, showing the publisher’s increased sales price over time. Included in the images are two signatures, both as “Dan Kavanagh”, but one showing the Kavanagh “flare” Barnes typically uses when signing as his pseudonym. The second “Dan Kavanagh” appears in Barnes’s normal hand, which is unusual for his pseudonym signature.
