The Towers of Silence Signed by Paul Scott 1st / 1st 1971
First UK edition and first print published by Heinemann in 1971. This copy is in very good ++ condition. The wrapper has some mild rubbing to the spine ends and tiny amounts of loss to the laminate in the corner tips. There is very little loss at all to the jacket and in general it is clean. It is not price clipped. The book is in presentable condition. The text block has a very faint smattering of fox marks towards the top only. There is no previous owner's ink. Overall a very good ++ copy.
This copy is scarce as it has been signed by the author Paul Scott to the title page without dedication. It is a difficult title to find in very good or better condition and seldom seen signed by the author.
The third novel in the Raj Quartet series, set in 1940's India, and about the genteel façade of British society amid the debris of a vanishing empire and World War II.
