The Very Fine Clock by Muriel Spark 1st / 1st 1969

The Very Fine Clock by Muriel Spark 1st / 1st 1969


First UK edition and first print published by Macmillan in 1969. This is a near fine copy. The complete wrapper has some very minor edge wear to the spine and corner tips. There are no tears or chips and very little fading. It is price clipped. The book has no foxing or ink and very little handling wear. Overall a near fine copy.


Because Ticky, the clock, is extremely wise, the professor and his friends vote to bestow upon him the title of Professor. But Ticky declines the honor. Muriel Spark's first children's story. Illustrated by Edward Gorey.
