A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James 1st / 1st 2014


First US edition and first print published by Riverhead Books in 2014 with a number line that goes down to 1. This is a very good copy. The wrapper has some minor rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine and rubbing to the top right hand corner. There is a miniscule chip to the back inside flap. The book has several light marks to the boards. The top right hand corner has been bumped. The wrapper has not been price clipped and the pages are clean with no marks or previous owners ink. Overall a very good copy.
