The Great Fire of London by Peter Ackroyd 1st / 1st 1982
First edition and first print published by Hamish Hamilton in 1982. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper has only very minor wear to the spine ends and corner tips. There are no chips or tears. It is also not price clipped. The book has no marks, foxing or previous owners ink. Overall a near fine copy.
The story involves a modern filmmaker (with the very literary name of Spenser Spender) who is trying to make a film of Dickens's novel, set in a London prison. The project becomes the focus of the interests of a colourful--and very Dickensian--collection of characters.
