Briggs, Raymond ~ When The Wind Blows (Signed By The Author With Ephemera)
Hamish Hamilton : 1982
The First UK edition - 'reprinted before publication' by Hamish Hamilton in 1982. The anticipated demand for this book motivated the publishers into undertaking two printings of this title before it was released onto the market, hence this is the second of the first edition printings. Both printings are identical apart from the publication details. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Original laminated boards with very minor bumping to the corners. Illustrated throughout. The book has been signed (without dedication) and dated (1983) by the author to the title page. Accompanied by a loosely inserted eight page programme for the play adaptation which was staged in Bristol. Briggs' first stage play adaptation. 'When the Wind Blows' is a harrowing tale of a nuclear attack on Britain by the Soviet Union from the viewpoint of retired couple Jim & Hilda Bloggs. The book was made into an animated film in 1986. One of the scarcest Briggs titles to find signed. Collectible with such attributes.
CONDITION: Near Fine
