Scarce True First UK Printing
Hulme, Keri ~ The Bone People ( With Scarce Booker Shortlist Promotional Band)
Spiral In Association With Hodder and Stoughton 1985
A First UK printing published by Spiral in association with Hodder and Stoughton in 1985.The BOOK is in near FINE condition.Mild pushing and rubbing at the spine tips which is inevitable due to the heavy weight of the book.The book is clean and free from inscriptions.The WRAPPER is in near FINE condition and is NOT faded to the spine.It has been neatly price-clipped.The scarce BOOKER Shortlist Promotional BAND is complete and in near FINE condition.The wrapper and band look very striking in the removable Brodart protective cover.The true first printings of the UK first edition are very rare and can be identified by three first issue points: 1) The book was printed in Singapore (noted on the copyright page); 2) The book is slightly larger and heavier than the second printing; and 3) the Dust Wrapper makes no reference to the Booker Prize.WINNER of the BOOKER PRIZE and scarce to find in such collectable condition with such attributes.
