His Man and He.
Nobel Lecture December 7, 2003.Rees & O'Neill, London , 2004 Stock Code: 122589
NotesFirst and signed limited edition, first impression, number 11 of 12 copies bound in Nigerian goatskin, inscribed by the author "How are they to be figured, this man and he? As master and slave? As brothers, twin brothers? As comrades in arms? Or as enemies, foes?". It is rare to find a work signed by the notoriously media-shy novelist, who did not appear to collect either of his Booker prizes. Coetzee read out this story, told through the character of Robinson Crusoe, as his acceptance speech for the 2003 Nobel Prize for Literature. A further 75 copies were bound in cloth.
Duodecimo. Original orange-brown full morocco, title to spine in gilt, initials "JMC" to front cover in gilt. Housed in the slipcase.
A fine copy.
