First printing of this brilliant First Edition thus, with textual emendations from the original Weidenfeld edition, and a unique introduction by Hilary Mantel. This latter is not just a bubbly enthusiastic rave, it is typically filled with Mantelian insight. The edition itself, for the very first time, does justice to a great novel. With all the considerable skill Farrell demonstrated in the magnificent 'Troubles', he illuminates the extraordinary moment when the British Empire was revealed to be vulnerable. The clash between religion and science is also examined. So, at last, we have a brilliant edition of this marvellous novel, and it is a great pleasure to be able to recommend this fine Folio issue as the supreme collectors version of this work. A great book gets its ideal and worthwhile treatment; the typeface is Perpetua, the paper is acid free Abbey Wove, and the cloth binding is decorated and protected by a sturdy slipcase. Wonderful specially commissioned illustrations, unique to this edition, as is the introduction. This copy is unread and mint perfect for the collector. All who admire this wonderful Booker winner will want this superlative edition. It is superb in every way, and this is its FIRST EDITION THUS. Forty years after it was first published, Troubles, by J G Farrell, is announced as the winner of the Lost Man Booker Prize - a one-off prize to honour the books published in 1970, but not considered for the prize when its rules were changed. It won by a clear majority, winning 38% of the votes by the international reading public, more than double the votes cast for any other book on the shortlist. Troubles was followed by The Siege of Krishnapur which then went on to win the Booker Prize in 1973 and was shortlisted for the Best of the Booker, a special award created to mark the 40th anniversary of the prize in 2008. Had Troubles been the winning novel in 1970, JG Farrell would have gone on to become the first author to win the Booker Prize twice. So, a great novel is finally given the heirloom standard production it so richly deserves. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng.
