First edition (printed in the UK). Hardcover. A long gift inscription on the verso of the front free endpaper, otherwise fine in fine dustjacket (sterling price present). Jacket handsomely illustrated by Andrew Wheatcroft. Follett's 'break-through' novel into the historical saga field, after an earlier career writing crime thrillers (often under psuedonyms), including the very successful spy thrillers beginning with "The Eye of the Needle" ("Storm Island") in 1978. "Pillars." is the first in the Kingsbridge series (now a trilogy which includes "World Without End", 2007 and "A Column of Fire", 2017) and "Pillars of Fire" may well turn out to be the author's best historical novel, as many of this current blockbusters appear hurried both in the writing and the publication. Macmillan produced two nearly identical issues of this title, both with high quality bindings and paper: the UK domestic issue was printed in Somerset and the jacket carries the price (within a black rectangle) of 13.95 net sterling. The issue printed for the Antipodes (Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and possibly elsewhere) was printed in Hong Kong, and copies are mostly (entirely?) second printings, with a small note to that effect three quarters of the way down the copyright page. These issues carry an export dustjacket, identical to the British domestic version, but with no price within the black rectangle on the jacket's front flap. This heavy book will cost more to send overseas, than any default postage rate noted (approximately an extra $10 US to most destinations). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 34789
