The Flight from the Enchanter by Iris Murdoch 1st / 1st 1956
First UK edition and first print published by Chatto & Windus in 1956. This is a very good ++ copy. The jacket is very complete with only minor wear to corners and spine ends with a tiny tear to the top left of the front panel. The jacket has browning overall especially to the edges and the spine. The jacket is not price clipped. The book is in nice condition with straight edges and corners, hardly any foxing or marks and no previous owner's ink. Overall a very good ++ copy.
Set mainly against the background of post-WWII West London, issues of immigration and women's liberation recur throughout the story. It is the booker winning author's second novel. The jacket design is by Edward Bawden.
