The First UK printing published by Secker and Warburg, London in 1977. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just a little toning to the text-block. Light offsetting to the end-papers. A neat previous owner's name and date to the upper front blank end-paper. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Light edge-wear with a little rubbing in places, more-so to the spine ends and folds. A few small nicks and light creasing in places to the edges. The lettering colouring to the spine has remained yellow and had not faded to white (as usually encountered). The wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been signed (without dedication) by the author to the title page. The Nobel Laureate and Booker prize winning author's second novel. Scarce
