What Our Customers Say...

Description

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

The first edition, first state, with the uncorrected error on pp. 113 which identifies 'O'hara' as 'Mr Johnson'. 

Inscribed by the author to the front free endpaper; "For Stephen...Eric Toronto, Oct 27th, 1869". 

From the library of Hungarian-Canadian author Stephen Vizinczey, best known for his 'In Praise of Older Women', and 'An Innocent Millionaire'. His writing was praised by the likes of Graham Greene and Anthony Burgess, describing his fiction as social epics which breathe hope in a corrupt world.

Illustrated with monochrome full page illustrations by Vlasta Van Hampen. 

This work of political fiction was written by Eric Koch and has been described as a "tongue in cheek political fantasy". The work follows Jo-Jo, a secret agent to the General.

In the publisher's original cloth with the original unclipped dust wrapper. 

Undated, dated by the inscription to the front free endpaper.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth with the original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally lovely with only slight bowing. The wrap is very smart with slight marks, edge wear, the odd small chip and a closed tear to the head of the spine. Internally firmly bound with clean and bright pages.
