The Handmaid’s Tale
By Margaret Atwood

First Canadian edition, first impression (McClelland and Stewart, 1985). Signed by the author to half-title. True first edition, preceding that of the UK and US. Attractive jacket design by Tad Aronowicz. Winner of the Governor General’s Award and the Arthur C. Clarke Award in 1987. Adapted into a successful on-going TV series in 2017.

Quarter-bound in maroon cloth with white lettering to spine, cream boards and maroon endpapers and paste-downs. Fine, with the usual rubbing to head and foot of spine. Contents lovely and clean. Very small closed tear to top of lower panel hinge and one further nick to top edge, near fine. A superior copy of a highlight of dystopian fiction.
