First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the title page, “To Ron Chandler, with my thanks and best wishes. Stanley Middleton. 1974”. The joint winner of the Booker Prize for 1974 and one of the very scarcest of all Booker Prize titles. Rare in first impression, and even more so inscribed.
