First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with the merest bumping at the spine tips. The contents, with a small thin mark to the far edge of one page are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and creased dustwrapper that is faded to the upper portion of the rear panel. Not price-clipped (£13.99 net to the lower front flap).
Loosely laid in is an official publisher's Wise Children bookplate which has been signed by Angela Carter in black ink. Scarce thus. The author's brilliant last novel published shortly before her February 1992 passing at the tragically young age of 51.
