How it works


The first edition in English of the author's fairly scarce second book and first volume of short stories. A fine unmarked copy in a very good plus price clipped dustwrapper which is otherwise complete, bright, unchipped and attractive, but has 3 closed tears along the top edge, the largest of which measures 1.5cms. Still an eminently collectable copy.
