1st Printing. Signed. 372 pages. Published in 2008. The author's third novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. Geraldine Brooks' first novel since her stunning Pulitzer Prize upset win. Advance Signed Copy. The First Hardcover Eiditon. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. "Autographed Copy" sticker pasted on the cover. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Geraldine Brooks' "People of The Book". Her "follow-up" novel to "March" (2006). The story is heaven-sent for all readers, and especially for rare book collectors/lovers. Brooks shows through one legendary book, the "Sarajevo Haggadah", how much books have meant to all civilizations, ancient and modern, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim, East and West alike. "Hanna Heath, an Australian rare book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: Analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, which has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian War. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding, she begins to unlock the book's mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book's journey from its salvation back to its creation. Inspired by a true story, 'People of the Book' is at once a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity, an ambitious, electrifying work by an acclaimed and beloved author" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Geraldine Brooks collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Geraldine Brooks. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, even though it comes from the publisher. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2006 for "March". One of the finest writers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GERALDINE BROOKS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 067001821X.
