The Sandcastle Signed by Iris Murdoch 1st / 1st 1957


First UK edition and first print published by Chatto & Windus in 1957. This is a very good + copy. The wrapper has wear to the corners and a tiny tear to the top edge of the front panel. There is also wear to the spine ends. The spine is sunned as is a portion of the wraparound band that covers the spine. The rare book society band is complete. Tucked into the front of the book is a signed photo of the author. She has also signed on the reverse. Overall a very good + copy and rare with the band and signed photo.


This is the booker winning author's third novel. It is the story of a middle-aged schoolmaster (Bill Mor) with political ambitions who meets a young painter (Rain Carter), come to paint a former school headmaster's portrait.
