On offer a SIGNED first edition AND first printing of' Midnight's Children' by Salman Rushdie published by Cape in 1981. The book was signed to me in person on 30 May 2016 at the Hay-On-Wye Book Festival in Wales, UK. The event ticket stays with me. This is the scarce UK first edition which reportedly had a low print run of 2,500 copies only (some sources claim the print run was as low as 1,000, but I think 2,500 seems to be the correct number).
It was printed on American style paper due to a strike in the UK at the time. The book has NO bumps, NO lean, NO inscriptions, is NOT ex-libray, and is clean throughout.There is a whiff of foxing to the upper page block edges and to the very tips of the American style page ends. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped and retains its vibrant blue colour. The wrapper's spine is slightly faded/ or misprinted which is very common. Two minor chips to upper dust jacket as pictured. Midnight's Children' won the (Man) Booker Prize in 1981 and catapulted Salman Rushdie into literary stardom.
In 1993 and 2008 respectively,'Midnight's Children' also won the'special best of Booker Prize prize'. Please check out my other collectible books on offer including many signed Booker Prize winners and more Salman Rushdies e.
