By John le Carré
First edition, first impression (Hodder & Stoughton, 1995). Signed and inscribed by the author to the title page with his real name (David Cornwell). Very rare signed in this way. One of a smaller print run due to the author’s dislike of the dust jacket.
Publisher’s original black cloth with gilt lettering to spine map endpapers and ribbon marker. Slightest hint of a spine slant with some cracking to half-title hinge, but still a near fine book or better, with boards and contents free from marks or inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket is in fine condition with just very trivial traces of wear to spine head. A superb copy bearing a very rare author signature.
The Remains of the Day
By Kazuo Ishiguro
First edition, first impression (Faber & Faber, 1989). Signed by the author to the title page. The third novel by the 2017 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, for which he won the Booker Prize in 1989.
Gift inscription to front endpaper; very minor bump to spine head. Original dust jacket is price-clipped, but both spine and rear panels are still bright and unfaded; very light wear to top edge. An excellent, near fine example.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll
Limited Edition (New York The Limited Editions Club, 1932). Illustrated by John Tenniel. One of 1500 copies to be signed and numbered by designer Frederic Warde, of which this is number 1011. Head and foot of spine a little rubbed; light foxing and marginal browning to front pastedown with very faint foxing to endpaper and to rear pastedown. Illustrated frontispiece and title-vignette with several in-text illustrations; all edges gilt; original red morocco gilt. An excellent, near fine example.
By Thomas Pynchon
First Edition, First Impression (Viking, 1973). Winner of the 1974 National Book Award and one of 4,000 copies in hardcover. First Issue dust jacket with the ISBN lettered in white over red on the rear panel and publishers date code '0273' on lower front flap. Couple of minor bumps and a little rubbing to corners of boards, contents pristine. Price-clipped dust jacket has a few soft creases and a little abrasion to top corner of rear panel. An excellent example of a novel considered by some to be among the greatest American Novels.
