    More Information:

    Muriel Spark and Howard Sergeant. Reassessment. Pamphlet No. 1. London: Sundial House, [n.d., 1948]. First edition of Spark's first "book" appearance under her married surname. One quarto sheet folded into four octavo pages. Some toning, mild thumbsoiling. Fine. A rare and fragile item, her first appearance in print as Muriel Spark (she had one broadside previously printed using her maiden name, Camberg, but there is only one known copy extant). This is the only known collaboration between Spark and Sergeant (they were romantically linked at the time, despite his being married). From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.
