BALLARD, J.G.
High-Rise.
London Jonathan Cape, 1975. First edition, first printing, signed presentation copy from the author; 8vo; publisher's boards, very slight tinge of sunning to extremities, dust-jacket by Craig Dodd, a little minor toning, but overall a very good, unclipped example, with the author's portrait to lower flap. A fine inscribed first edition of this keystone dystopian work by J.G. Ballard, anticipating the breakdown of modern society, set amongst the then increasingly proliferate high-rise residential buildings that serve as a hothouse for class resentment, primeval instincts and capitalist excess gone mad. Successfully adapted for film by Ben Wheatley in 2015, starring Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller & Jeremy Irons. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Shapero Rare Books [London, United Kingdom]
