RUSHDIE, Salman

THE SATANIC VERSES - SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

Date: 1988

First edition. Original blue boards in dustwrapper. Signed by the author on the title page. A near fine copy with some even fading to the dustwrapper spine. The author’s most famous book and one of the most notorious books of modern times. The Satanic Verses was deemed to be against Islam, the Prophet and the Koran, causing the late Ayatollah Khomeini to issue a fatwa on its author, declaring him an enemy of Islam whose blood should be shed, causing Rushdie to go into hiding for almost twelve years.
