8vo. 222pp. Black cloth hardcover in illustrated jacket. Cover illustration by Stephen Russ. 1st Edition. Jacket’s edges are a little worn, with some minor chipping at the head and tail of the spine. There is a closed, 1cm tear to the jacket’s front cover. Its spine is a little faded. The book itself is very slightly cocked and its boards’ a little browned. The contents are clean, clear and bright, with only the most modest suggestion of tanning. Previous owner’s signature on first free front endpaper. The jacket is unclipped.

All said, this is a fine example of an important, rare and much sought after first edition in very good condition.Russ’s cover illustration is bright and Naipaul’s text as clear as could be hoped for. His third novel, Naipaul’s early text are extremely collectable.
