First edition of novelist E.M. Forster's essay on the place of the author's name in literature, opening with the question: "Do you like to know who a book's by?" Forster argues that the best literature "wants not to be signed . . . Literature does not want to remember." A near-fine copy of an interesting critical work, published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf as number XII in the Hogarth Press essay series.
