The author's first novel. A UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is unfaded, and is complete. It is unclipped - there is inconsequential residue over the price where a later price sticker has been removed / fallen off. Looks very sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages are bright. The closed page edges are a little dusty. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
Publisher: Jonathan Cape, 1980
Condition: Near Fine. Wrapper: Fine
