The Inheritors - with the rare wrap-around band - William Golding - 1955. 
Faber 1955 - A first edition, first printing published by Faber in 1955. The book is very good with a small crease to the outer edge of the ffep and a little foxing to the pages' top edge. The dustwrapper is complete (not price-clipped at 12/6) and is within a protective sleeve. There is some tanning to it and a little scuffing to the spine but it remains attractive. With the rare wrap-around band. William Golding's second novel. Eight Neanderthals encounter another race of beings like themselves, yet strangely different. This new race, Homo sapiens, fascinating in their skills and sophistication, terrifying in their cruelty, sense of guilt, and incipient corruption, spell doom for the more gentle folk whose world they will inherit. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
