Fitzgerald, Penelope ~ The Bookshop

The First UK printing published by Duckworth, London in 1978. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with one tiny mark to the lower front cover. Free from inscriptions and erasures. A hint of toning to the text-block. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. It is the correct first issue bearing the price of £3.95. It would be in fine condition except for the usually encountered fading of the yellow colouring to the spine which has slightly encroached onto the adjacent edges. The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. A sharp copy of the Booker Prize winning author's second book which has been recently adapted into a movie starring Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy. Collectible.
