The Elected Member by Bernice Rubens 1st / 1st 1969
First edition published by Eyre & Spottiswoode in 1969. This copy is rare as it is near fine. The spine of the jacket is a shade faded and there are a couple of creases on the lower inside flap and a crease to the upper inside flap. There are tiny amounts of wear to the odd corner. Otherwise the jacket is in fantastic condition. This is the first state jacket with the earliest portrait of the author on the back panel. The book is also excellent with no foxing, marks or ink.
Bernice Ruben's booker prize winning novel from 1969. A rarity to find as a first edition and in this sort of condition.
