The Mimic Men [signed]


1st impression in publisher's original red cloth with gilt titles to spine - all still fresh and clean and almost fine with titles ghosted very faintly to spine as usual and tiny indentation at top left corner of front board. The binding is tight, sound and square. Internally clean with no inscriptions except AUTHOR'S SIGNATURE, WITHOUT INSCRIPTION, FLAT-SIGNED DIRECTLY TO TITLE PAGE. The unclipped dustjacket is still fresh, crisp and bright with a tiny mark at top edge of rear panel. Signed copies of V.S.Naipaul's output are scarce especially his early publications. A lovely copy. We have several other signed V.S. Naipaul
