First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, “Harry and Barbara, with love, Iris.” The recipients were the artist Harry Weinberger and his wife Barbara Herrmann. Weinberger was a close friend of Iris Murdoch, who had painted her portrait. Murdoch wrote several catalogue introductions to his work, and found in his paintings a “charged, numinous atmosphere, the awkward mystery of space and the spiritual significance of colour”. Murdoch spent a portion of her Booker Prize on his paintings.

Octavo. Original grey boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled; an excellent copy in the jacket with sunned spine.
