Description

Author: Salman Rushdie

Title: Midnight’s Children

Publisher: Jonathan Cape, London, 1981

Description of the book: First UK edition. Original red quarter cloth, grey paper boards, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket and wraparound band. The rare wrap-around band announcing that the book was the “Winner of the 1981 £10,000 Booker McConnell Prize for fiction…” First edition, first impression, UK issue taken from the American sheets. Signed by the author  on the title page. Reportedly only1,000 copies issued by Cape from US sheets. Midnight’s Children won the 1981 Booker Prize and, in 1993, the Booker of Bookers Prize as the best novel to receive the award in the first 25 years of its existence and is undoubtedly Rushdie’s magnum opus.

Condition of the book: Small faint dampstain to top edge of text block, board corners lightly worn. A  good  copy in a wrapper with extensive fading to spine panel (as is common with this book), but includes the original price of £6.95.
