The author's DEBUT novel. A UK first edition, first impression - with a number that includes the number 1.
WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a tiny touch of bruising to the spine ends and lower edges. Looks sharp.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. There is a touch of bruising to the spine ends. The pages are clean. The text block and closed page edges are - as ever - gently toned. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. An decent copy in a protected wrapper.
