An exceptional copy
Naipaul, V.S. ~ A House For Mr Biswas
Andre Deutsch, London : 1961
The First UK printing published by Andre Deutsch, London in 1961. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with a tiny bump to the rear upper corner. The boards are clean and the gilt titling remains bright. Only very light spotting to the text-block and a few light spots to the the rear black end-paper. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The book appears unread with no creasing of the spine. The WRAPPER is complete and is in near Fine condition. Very light edge-wear with only a slither of loss at the upper spine tip. A barely discernible tiny indentation to the spine with no loss. The usual fading of the colouring to the spine. The rear panel and flaps are clean. The Stephen Russ wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The Nobel Laureate's fourth novel and his most acclaimed work, listed on both 'Modern Library' and 'Time's' 100 great novels of the twentieth century. Extremely scarce in this collectible condition and the nicest copy we have handled to date.
