Life & Times of Michael K
Life and Times of Michael K
By J. M. Coetzee
First edition, first impression (Secker & Warburg, 1983). Signed by the author to the title page. Winner of the 1983 Booker Prize. Publisher’s original black cloth with gold lettering to spine. A few small and unobtrusive marks to upper board with a contemporary gift inscription to front endpaper, a little dustiness to top edge, near fine otherwise in the original and unclipped dust jacket, complete with the red wraparound band. Small area of abrasion to top corner of lower panel and a hint of fading to bottom portion of spine panel; minor and occasional traces of edge wear; crease to rear flap; a few tears to wraparound band. An excellent, near fine copy overall. Uncommon with the band.
A House for Mr Biswas
By V.S. Naipaul
First American edition, first impression (McGraw-Hill, 1961). Jacket design by Stephen Russ.
Original dark green cloth with white lettering to spine. Just a hint of knocking and rubbing to extremities, else fine and internally pristine without names or inscriptions. The original dust jacket is clipped to bottom corner of front flap, but still bears the original '$5.95' price; a few small nicks to spine head with a touch of rubbing here and there. A lovely and bright near fine copy of the author's most iconic work.
