The first edition, first impression of this work. A favourably received novel dealing with adultery and a theme of the 'double' that extends into the types of love suggested by the title: the sacred and the profane. Winner of the Whitbread Novel Award in 1974. Written by Iris Murdoch, Irish novelist known for writing novels dealing with good and evil, sexuality, morality, and the unconscious.
Complete with its unclipped dust wrapper designed by John Sutcliffe.
In the original publisher's full cloth binding. Externally lovely with only a minor cocking forward of the spine. The dust wrapper is excellent with minor shelf wear and a minor closed tear to the rear wrap. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean.
