Item Description: Faber and Faber, London, 1954. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by William Golding. An exceptional copy. "A collection of modern fiction would never be complete without it" (Connolly, 136). Originally published in 1954, The Lord of the Flies was named to Modern Library’s 100 Greatest Novels List of the twentieth century. "[T]his brilliant work is a frightening parody on man's return (in a few weeks) to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. Lord of the Flies does. It must also be superbly written. It is" (The New York Times Book Review). Bookseller Inventory # 3089

Item Description: Coward-McCann, Inc., New York, 1955. First American Edition. First Printing. Octavo; 3/4 dark green textured paper over quarter beige cloth, with titles stamped in dark green on spine; dustjacket; 243pp. Contemporary owners name and date to front endpaper, sunning to board edges, with faint trace of foxing to text edges; Very Good+ to Near Fine. Dustjacket is price-clipped, with light wear to spine ends and corner tips, else a bright, Near Fine example. Housed in a custom dark green cloth slipcase. Considerably less common that its British counterpart; when Lord of the Flies was first published in the U.S. in 1955, it sold only 2,383 copies before quickly going out of print. By the numbers, fewer copies of the American edition were produced and survived than the British, which was published at 3,040 copies. Golding's best-known and most controversial novel. Lord of Flies is ranked #41 on the Modern Library's list of 100 Best Novels, and is the basis for both the 1963 Peter Brook film (terrific) and the 1990 film directed by Harry Hook (ghastly). Though it remains one of the most challenged books by the American Library Association year after year, it is likely to be required reading in schools for the forseeable future.
