Edition: First edition
Cloth-backed patterned boards in dust jacket; small 8vo. 78 pp., with the uncorrected proof in patterned wraps and dust jacket, both handsomely inscribed in 2004.. Both signed by the author. Clamshell case housing both. Although not his first book, as he had published poetry, and for the theatre, in the West Indies going back to the late 40's, this was his first book published in Great Britain, and first outside the Caribbean. His first book to be published in the U.S., where he lived and taught for many years, came two years later. He won the Nobel Prize in 1992, a full thirty years after this book's publication. Dust jacket of trade edition price-clipped else all fine; proof is very good the jacket worn at edges but very good, bright and complete (not price-clipped). Quite uncommon in this condition, the proof scarce; and especially so signed. For the pair in clamshell case with leather label.
