1982 On Going to Bed
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first edition of this interesting volume all about beds: different types of bed, bed habits, the history, bed as the place to dream and have nightmares, bed as an instrument of fantasy or as status symbol; a bed can be many things, and in this fascinating read, Anthony Burgess explores all that it is and can be, bringing a wealth of general bedlore with illustrations and colour plates that represent scores of beds from antiquity to present day.
Anthony Burgess was an English writer and composer. Although he was mainly a comic writer, his dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange is his most acclaimed novel.
With unclipped dustwrapper. Illustrated.
In the publisher's original brown cloth. Externally lovely. Dustwrapper is unclipped and excellent, with faint scattered spotting internal to wraps, not affecting cover. Dustwrapper illustrated with painting by Toulouse-Lautrec. Pages are bright and clean.
