Anthony Burgess - 1985

Little Brown, 1978. 8vo. Hardcover. 272 pp. First edition, second printing. As for condition, good news first: Dust jacket is like new, perfectly preserved under archival mylar. Which leads us to the bad news: it's a former library book, with library markings aplenty. Stamp on textblock fore-edge, cardpocket on front endpaper, borrower history sticky paper thing on rear endpaper, stamps on half-title page, and scotch tape on the cloth boards. For all that library razzmatazz, however, it appears not to have been terribly popular with library patrons, so pages are relatively clean. Keep in mind that if placed on a book shelf none of these peccadillos would be apparent to friends and guests.
