NotesFirst edition, signed limited issue, number 4 of 100 copies signed by the author and bound in quarter morocco (a further 12 signed copies were published in full morocco). Rushdie's fourth novel and a major work in the magical realist canon, The Satanic Verses ignited furious controversy, leading to the book being banned and protested across the world, with the author placed under police protection for several years.
Octavo. Original dark blue quarter morocco, spine lettered in gilt, blue cloth sides ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers.
Very light marking to covers, trivial spotting to edges, else a near-fine copy.
