First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Original blue cloth with silver lettering to the spine, in the dustwrapper illustrated by Larry Rostant. A fine copy, the binding tight and square, the contents clean and without inscriptions or stamps, the pages lightly toned owing to the paper stock used. In the near fine dustwrapper, a little toned to the spine, with some minor pushing to the lower spine-tip. Altogether, an attractive signed example of the author's first novel.
Signed by the author in blue ink to the title page, in the upper-case form he used when signing his first novel. The first of the 'Thursday Next' books.
