Chatto & Windus / The Hogarth Press, London, 1984
Octavo. Red paper boards with gilt titles to spine. Unclipped illustrated dust jacket. Small water stain to top edge of text block, slight toning to edges as usual with this book. Otherwise a fine copy with no fading to the jacket.
Discreet label to front pastedown, "From the Library of Angela Carter". The author has begun to present the book on the title page but stops before completing the presentation, "For Diane B ...". Publicity postcard for the novel signed by Carter and inscribed, "for John Hunt", loosely inserted.
Carter's penultimate novel before her untimely death in 1992.
