Kazuo Ishiguro - The Remains of the Day

New York: Knopf, 1989. First American edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 1/2 blue cloth binding. 245 pp. Red topstain. Very good condition. Very light wear along edges of covers. Immaculate interior. Dust jacket is very sharp, very bright with a tiny bit of crease-wear along upper edge of flaps (see photos). Winner of the Booker Prize for fiction and undoubtedly responsible in no small part for Ishiguro's receipt of the Nobel Prize in Literature, The Remains of the Day was also adapted into the award-winning film of the same name (1993).
