Auflage: 1st Edition


1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. We are delghted to present for sale one of the few proof copies ever produced of 'Watership Down'.Rex Collings (The publishers) sent around ten copies to London reviewers in 1972.The tiny publishers who, legend has it, could not afford to even pay Adams' advance, produced the proof in a hurry. This is evident given the fact that the title of the book is handwritten on to the spine of the blue proof cover.There is no record of another proof selling within the last ten years and no other copy is presently available for sale at the time of writing.Given the fact that the book has sold over 50 million copies worldwide, this copy is perhaps the first time this story appeared in print.The book itself is bound into pale blue plain paper covers, onto which has been handwritten the title, presumably by the publisher or the recipient. The BOOK is in Very Good sound condition, has clearly been read more than once, the page edges are a bit grubby and the page corners are no longer sharp.This is in effect the text block of the true UK first edition.There is no fold-out map at the rear as there is in the proper trade edition, nor it appears has there ever been one.The WRAPPER has clearly been with the book since new.It is the true first edition trade dust jacket (although the jacket is slightly longer than the book),in Very Good+ condition, with some wear to the folds and a couple of closed tears to the top of the spine where it has been handled carelessly, probably when removing it from a bookshelf.There is also a tiny piece missing to the right of the publisher's name, and the spine has faded a little also.A very scarce item and a must for any true Adams/Watership Down collector.Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.
