WHITE, Patrick

The Cockatoos

London: Cape, 1974

8vo, pp. 307. Original green boards, lettered in gilt to spine. Top edge blue. A near fine, unread copy in a near fine illustrated dustwrapper designed by Desmond Digby, with just a little light wear to head of spine.

First edition.

A collection of six novellas and short stories. Despite its author being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature the previous year, this collection sold only modestly on publication. Then and now, White is more revered than read. Good news for collectors, though, as his books are cheaper than they should be.

A very nice copy.
