A SIGNED UK first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright and complete. It is unclipped. It shows a touch of gentle fading to the spine - as is so often the case with this title. 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 spine ends are inconsequentially bruised. The pages and closed page edges are clean and bright. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. This copy has been inscribed by Heaney to the title page : To Alan, with all good wishes, Seamus Heaney. 6 November 1998. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
