Jack's Return Home by Ted Lewis 1st / 1st 1970
FIRST UK EDITION published by Michael Joseph in 1970. The Bill Hodden wrapper is complete and has not been price clipped. There is minor wear along the bottom edge of the front panel. The boards are in nice shape. There is an erasure mark to the top of the front board and an unobtrusive harrods blind stamp mark to the inside back board. The pages and block is remarkably clean without foxing. There are no inscriptions or previous owners names. Overall it is a near fine copy.
The novel has been adapted three times to the big screen, with the best being in 1971 with Michael Caine as Carter in 'Get Carter'. A scarce title to find and particularly so in this condition.
