About this Item

First edition, first printing. The Author’s First Book. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth lettered in gilt, in the original dustjacket. 184 pp. A near as mint copy, the dustjacket and text block both pristine. FIRST EDITION OF THIS SCARCE WORK, THE FIRST BOOK BY THE AUTHOR. Iain Banks was named in 2008 by THE TIMES to their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". A 1997 poll of over 25,000 readers listed The Wasp Factory as one of the top 100 books of the 20th century. As an unknown writer, Banks’ success was a question and the print run on this debut novel was very small. Thus the difficulty in obtaining a true first printing of the book as here.
