The Owl Service
A SIGNED US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, clean and complete. It has been clipped - hence the Near Fine description. Unusually for this title, the spine is unfaded. Looks sharp in protective plastic.
Book : The book is square and very tight. The boards are clean, the corners are sharp. The spine ends are very gently bruised and there is a trace of rubbing to the lower corners. The pages are clean. No foxing. The closed page edges are unmarked. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. This copy has been FLAT SIGNED by Alan Garner to the title page. Uncommon signed. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
