Lowry, Malcolm


1st Edition

First thus. With an introductory note by Margerie Lowry. Publisher’s brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. About fine. In near fine dust jacket, with very slight edgewear and rubbing to spine ends. *** After Lowry’s death in 1957 there was renewed interest in his work, leading to reprints and several posthumous publications. During his lifetime he only published two books: the magnificent Under the Volcano and his almost forgotten debut novel Ultramarine, which had been long out of print when a revised edition was published in America in 1962. Jonathan Cape published the same revised edition a year later in 1963. Our copy is a first printing of that edition. (Also available is a proof copy of that same edition.)
