Devil of a State signed by Anthony Burgess 1st / 1st 1961
First edition and first print published by Heinemann in 1961. This is a very good ++ copy. It has been signed by Anthony Burgess without dedication to the title page. The wrapper is very complete with no chips or tears. The spine has browned. It is not price clipped. The book in the original publisher's red cloth is in very nice condition with no foxing to the pages or marks. There is one small previous owners name on the front free end paper.
This is the fourth of the author's "exotic novels", following the malayan trilogy: Time for a Tiger, The Enemy in the Blanket and Beds in the East. Rare signed
