How it works


First edition, first impression. Published in London by Jonathan Cape in 1960.

Black cloth, gilt lettering, eye design on front board.

Verso of title page states "First Published 1960".

Dust wrapper priced at 15s.

The first print run was 21,712 copies.

Book is clean internally with no foxing spots and only a contemporary gift inscription on the front end paper. The spine ends have rubbing and there is some cloth splitting at the spine tail along the rear hinge. The dust jacket is not price clipped and the red titles on the spine are unfaded (usually found faded to yellow or even white). There is, however, some age associated rubbing along the edges and spine ends.
