The Sea signed by John Banville 1st / 1st 2005


First edition and first print published by Picador in 2005. This copy is in very good ++ condition. The wrapper and book are both rubbed to the top left corner at the front. The wrapper is not price clipped and there is only very minor handling wear. There's no marks inside and no other ink other than the author's signature on the title page. Overall a very good ++ copy.


The story is told, as a reflective journal, by Max Morden, a retired art historian "attempting to reconcile himself to the deaths of those he loved as a child and as an adult". Winner of the booker prize in 2005.
