First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author. Publisher's original red cloth with silver titles to the spine, in the Tim Jacques illustrated dustwrapper. A near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents with toning to the text block due to the poor quality paper used in production are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Compete with the lightly creased and spine faded original dustwrapper. Not price-clipped (£13.95 to the front flap).
Signed by the author in blue ink on half title and further inscribed in his hand on the title page "O. / Con amore, / May 1988".
