Clea by Lawrence Durrell 1st / 1st 1960
First UK edition and first print published by Faber & Faber in 1960. It is in very good +++ condition. The wrapper is very complete with very little loss. There is a tear to the back panel and also towards the centre of the spine. It is not price clipped. The book is very presentable with clean and bright boards. The pages have no foxing or previous owners ink. It is a smart copy. Overall a very good +++ copy.
Clea, published in 1960, is the fourth volume in The Alexandria Quartet series. Set in Alexandria, Egypt, around World War II, the first three volumes tell the same story from different points of view, and Clea relates subsequent events.
