First American edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy. Publisher's original green patterned paper covered boards, yellow cloth spine with titles in brown and black, in the Seymour Chwast illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the price-clipped dustwrapper which is very slightly nicked at the spine tips. An attractive example.
Inscribed by the author in black ink on the title page "For Deirdre, with / many happy memories / from / Michael Holroyd". The author's first novel.
