Bellow, Saul


1st Edition

Red cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Previous owner’s signature and date (’59) in small writing on f.f.e. Neat contemporary bookseller’s sticker (from Foyles) on front paste-down. Sl. soiling of head of text block. Otherwise a clean and tight copy.

A strange, comical novel about the exploits of a naive American millionaire in Africa.
