London: Jonathan Cape, (1985). First edition. This is a near fine copy. The finely illustrated dust wrapper is clean and without notable wear aside from a mild scratch on the front panel and some light rubbing along the top edge; it has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and the text blocks are bright and white throughout. Overall, this is a near fine copy. The author’s sixth major novel, following The Collector, The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, Daniel Martin, and Mantissa. Its title, as the author explains in the prologue, is taken from the archaic sense of the word that means "whim", "quirk", "obsession", or even a snatch of music
