Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Sylvester & Orphanos: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial cloth boards with titles embossed on spine, as issued. Text by Nadine Gordimer. Printed on thick, uncoated Arches Mouldmade archival paper in the United States to the highest standards. In glassine DJ, as issued. Presents, in a Limited Edition format, Nadine Gordimer's "Town And Country". A triumphant achievement. One of Gordimer's lasting contributions to contemporary literature is her seamless fusion of political subject matter (of the most urgent kind) with beautiful prose (of the most elegant kind). Not an ideologue but a committed activist, Gordimer is an aesthete who values The Beautiful in an age that has relentlessly undermined the idea because it is the most subversive one of all. "Her magnificent epic writing has been of very great benefit to humanity" (Nobel Prize Citation). An absolute "must-have" title for Nadine Gordimer collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Nadine Gordimer. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1974 for "The Conservationist". Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER NADINE GORDIMER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 15139
