Lionel ABSO, signed by Martin Amis, 1st/1st, 2012
London: Jonathan Cape, (2012). SIGNED. First edition. This is a fine copy. The wrapper, indicating the ‘state of England’, is without notable signs of wear, aside from very light crumpling at the tail. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks, and the text blocks are bright and white. The author’s signature, present on the title page in black ink, is without inscription. Overall, this is a fine copy with the equally fine copy of ‘Smarty Marty’.
Lionel ASBO is a very violent but not very successful criminal. The author tells his sorry story. A nice signed copy.
