Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

First edition. Marian Taylor is a young English teacher who has accepted a position as governess at an isolated country house called Gaze Castle. She is surprised to learn that there are no children at Gaze, and that she will be teaching French and Italian to the lady of the house, Hannah Crean-Smith. Written by Dame Jean Iris Murdoch, an Irish-British novelist and philosopher known for her novels about good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious.

Condition

In the original full cloth binding. Externally, very smart with the odd small mark to the boards. Original unclipped dust wrapper is also smart with light wear and the odd small closed tear to the extremities. Minor sunning to the spine with the odd small mark to the panels. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean with the odd spot to the endpapers.
