First edition, first printing (with the words “Special Volume, Francs: 1.500” to rear wrapper), of Donleavy’s first novel, inscribed by the author on the half-title with the novel’s final words, “God’s mercy on the wild, J. P. Donleavy”.

Octavo. Original green and white wrappers printed in black. Very mild toning to spine, very light rubbing to ends and corners, faint mark to rear wrapper, a really excellent copy.
