A Month In The Country

London: Cornucopia Press, 1990

Large 8vo, pp. 106. Original olive green boards, title labels to front panel and spine, with original unprinted acetate wrapper. Pink endpapers, top edge gilt. A fine copy in the original acetate wrapper with a single small chip to head of spine.

Second, limited edition, NO. 56 OF 300 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND RONALD BLYTHE. Blythe provides the introduction to this edition.

First published in 1980, A Month In The Country was shortlisted for that year's Booker Prize, and one of the very best novels never to win it, losing out to William Golding's Rites Of Passage. (Ronald Blythe was a member of the Booker judges' panel that year). The text used here is slightly revised from that of the first edition, and comes with a new foreword from the author.

A beautiful edition of an absolute masterpiece.
