Faber and Faber Limited, 1st edition 1954
South African novelist Peter Abrahams’ autobiographical account of growing up in the slums of Johannesburg.
Dustwrapper design by Berthold Ludwig Wolpe.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 311pp. 8.25 x 5.5 inches approx. (208mm x 140mm).
Dustwrapper worn and creased along top edge; light wear to spine ends; maybe a touch sunned/tanned to spine; a little dusty and marked in places but generally very clean. Offsetting to endpapers; age tanned and foxed to margins but pages generally clean, some waviness to edges.
Nonetheless, a nice, clean copy in its strikingly designed dustwrapper.
