About this Item: Doubleday & Company, New York, 1954. Handsomely bound in finely woven reddish-brown cloth stamped brighty in white on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout; virtually unread. In a dust jacket designed by Edward Gorey with the original price of $3.50 at the top of the inside front flap. With a 1" x 1" piece missing at the top of the spine which is darkened. Wear along the edges and at the corners. Chips at the bottom ends of the spine and at the corners. A few numbers and a name in ink at the bottom of the white section of the dust jacket's front panel. Lucky Jim is a novel by Kingsley Amis, published in 1954 by Victor Gollancz. It is Amis' first novel and won the Somerset Maugham Award for fiction. Set sometime around 1950, Lucky Jim follows the exploits of the eponymous James (Jim) Dixon, a reluctant medieval history lecturer at an unnamed provincial English university. The tone is often truculent and plain-spoken, but its diction and style are wide-ranging and finely modulated. The novel pioneers the characteristic subject matter of the time: a young man making his way in a post-war world that combines new and moribund attitudes. (Wikipedia) First Edition (Stated "First Edition" on the copyright page). Seller Inventory # 502

About this Item: Gollancz, 1953. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. First edition, first impression, in the scarce original issue first-state wrapper. Very Good: firmly bound in sharp green cloth, sunned to the spine (with dulled gilt), and rubbed to part of the upper fore-edge; tanned to the edge of the page block with light foxing to the top-edge (only); previous owner’s elegant bookplate and neat signature to the front endpapers; a few minor marks or spots, but fundamentally bright and clean pages; tiny loss to the bottom corner of two pages. The unclipped, first-state dustwrapper (12/6 stated) is Fair: generally bright and clean with vibrant colouring; for reasons unknown, the top and bottom edges were trimmed along their length by 5mm - these sections have been added back using paper from a Gollancz wrapper of the period, a fairly primitive repair that does not bear close scrutiny but which gives a sense of completeness; presented in a removable protective wrapper. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. Seller Inventory # G172
