A Suitable Boy Signed by Vikram Seth Limited Edition 1st / 1st 1993
This limited edition published by Sixth Chamber Press is the true first UK printing having been published in advance of the trade edition on March 24th 1993. There were 26 copies lettered A-Z with a hologram quotation in each copy. This copy is not lettered and doesn't have the quotation as it is an out of series copy. But it is signed by the author and is bound in the publisher's original full red morocco with gilt titling (as the 26 copies were). The book is in near Fine condition with just some very light spotting to the upper text-block. The spine is a shade lighter than the rest of the binding.
According to the publisher, this was the first UK edition, preceded only by the first Indian edition. In strictly small numbers of 26 plus this out of series copy. The BBC broadcast a six-part series of the novel recently. A scarce title to find as a true first, signed and in the original full morocco binding.
