First edition in English, first printing. Publisher's original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents with the ink stamp of "bureau Hongrois pour la protection des droits d'auteurs [Hungarian office for the protection of copyright]" and with a catalogue number in ink to the front endpaper are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and spine faded dustwrapper which has been needlessly strengthened to the underside at the spine tips. Not price-clipped ($4.50 to the upper front flap). An excellent example of a scarce title, with interesting provenance.

The first printing of this multi-award winning Hungarian author's first book to be published in the English language. Provenance: Hungarian office for the protection of copyright, file copy; Swedish private collection.
