Flying Visits - Clive James

Jonathan Cape, 1984, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a crease to the laminate at the foot of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the introduction: “These articles, along with some of the Introduction, appeared in the Observer from time to time between 1976 and 1983. Here and there I have restored some small cuts which had to be made if the piece was to fit the page, but otherwise I have added very little. The occasional outright howler has been corrected, but only if it was a matter of detail which I should have got right in the first place. Hindsight would have allowed further improvements but there would have been no end to the process.”

Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. [XI] 180 pages.
