Third impression, INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. 8vo. Red cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Lean to spine, gentle pushing to head of spine, corners bruised. Inscribed by Byatt to title page: “For Anne/ from/ A S Byatt,” in black pen to title page. Ilkley Literature Festival 2000 bookmark, plus two ticket-stubs for Byatt’s reading, laid in. Else, clean and tight. In the original dust jacket: gentle sunning to spine, creasing to edges, red stain (from upper board) to reverse of front panel. Still, a very good copy of Byatt’s “Borges-like” novel.
