plain black paper-covered boards with bright,crisp,blocked gilt letters to spine /backstrip and near immaculate plain white endpapers.UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn,9-128pp includes half-title+title pages,verses from W.B.Yeats poem 'Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen',and 6 chapters with other verse/ quotations from W.H.Auden,Ezra Pound,and Walter de la Mare throughout the text.
Parallel after parallel slides wickedly into place as Muriel Spark's hilarious new (then 1974) novel transfigures a marvellously telling satire into a luminous and universal parable.A really nice,exceptional copy,probably the best I have handled.See also rja2110,rja2114 and rja2115 for other Muriel Spark titles.
