The Rachel Papers
By Martin Amis
Light foxing to edges with faint spotting to endpapers, else fine. Original and unclipped dust jacket has the usual fading to the spine panel, but far less severe than usual; small closed tear to bottom of rear panel; corners rubbed with a nick to bottom corner of front panel; general wear/rubbing to extremities. A great, signed copy of the author's first novel.

The Remains of the Day
