Under The Volcano

Published: London, Jonathan Cape, 1967

Date: 1967

Jonathan Cape, London, 1967. First Edition Thus. A very good plus copy in a vg++ d.w., small triangular closed tear and associated crease head to front panel, light wear to extremities else an attractive example of this scarce printing of Lowry's masterpiece first published 1947.

Malcolm Lowry's masterwork classic, an expressionistic novel of the final, desperate day of a former British consul drinking himself to death in Mexico. The book "was poorly received in Britain and soon remaindered, but was hailed as a work of genius in North America, becoming a best-seller".

Very good
