A World of Strangers Signed by Nadine Gordimer 1st / 1st 1958


First UK edition and first print published by Gollancz in 1958. A very nice Near Fine copy. The wrapper is very complete and bright. It has none of the browning that is normally seen on this jacket. The bright yellow colour is evenly toned across the jacket. The spine is not faded or browned. There are a couple of miniscule tears to the edges. It is price clipped. The book has one small previous owners name to the front free end paper otherwise is in near fine condition. There is no foxing to the pages or text block. It is signed without dedication by the author to the title page. Overall a near fine copy and rare with these attributes.


The novel's main plot focuses on depicting the divisions and boundaries that Apartheid and international capitalism create within South African society. It was banned in South Africa for 12 years.
