The Flounder signed by Gunter Grass 1st / 1st 1978


First UK edition and first print published by Secker & Warburg in 1978. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper is very clean and complete with no tears or chips. There is also very little if any wear to the edges or corners. The jacket has started to brown towards the edges but retains its original colours. It is not price clipped. The book is very clean and presentable with very little handling wear also. There is no previous owners marks. The author Gunter Grass has signed without dedication to the front free end paper. Overall a really nice near fine copy.


The Flounder (German: Der Butt) is loosely based on the fairy tale "The Fisherman and His Wife". It has been translated by Ralph Manheim. The wrapper was designed by the author.
