Pulse | Final Uncorrected Proof (Jonathan Cape, 2010)


Notes on this edition: 

Pulse. Jonathan Cape, 2010. Final Uncorrected Proof with lengthy inscription by Julian Barnes stating: “the first proof run to be bound up was suppressed because of authorial complaint at the myriad errors. A very few of the final (or near-final) corrected proofs were later bound up, of which this is one”.

Note: The inscription has been edited to remove part of the personalized dedication.

Pulse | Uncorrected Proof (Jonathan Cape, 2010)


Notes on this edition: Pulse | Uncorrected Proof. London: Jonathan Cape, 2010.

When Jonathan Cape produced the uncorrected proof of Pulse, the text included enough errors that Julian Barnes asked the publisher to “pulp” or destroy the proof edition. Cape produced a subsequent, corrected and unbound proof for use within the publishing house and by the author while making his final revisions to the text. The author and publisher spared the specimen featured here specifically for inclusion in the Julian Barnes bibliography.

Keeping an Eye Open (Jonathan Cape, 2015)


Notes on this edition: Jonathan Cape published Julian Barnes’s collection of art essays Keeping an Eye Open in 2015. On the “Acknowledgements” page, Barnes states (in part), “This book owes its existence to the encouragement of my friend and Danish publisher Claus Clausen. When he first suggested bringing out a collection of my art essays, I thought he was joking; when he repeated the offer, I thought he was still just being polite. He convinced me otherwise, and twelve of these pieces appeared as Som jeg ser dat (Tiderne Skifter, 2011).”

Descriptive Bibliography: First edition – London: Jonathan Cape, 2015. £16.99. Paper cover with French flaps.

The Noise of Time | Jacket Printing Error (Jonathan Cape, 2016)


Notes on this edition: A small number of copies of the first U.K. edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time were distributed with a printing error on the dust jacket. The red lettering is missing for the author’s name on the front and spine and the blurbs to the back of the jacket. The letters impressed upon the jacket, which created an embossed effect (as shown in the photos), but the ink failed to apply.

In addition to the copy featured here, the author was made aware of two additional copies with this error. The exact number of copies with this printing error is unknown.

The Noise of Time (Jonathan Cape, 2016)


Notes on this edition: The first English language edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time was preceded in publication by the Dutch and Georgian translations. A very small quantity of dust jackets for the first edition were published with a printing error in which the red lettering was not applied (see example).
