THE ANGEL'S GAME. ***SIGNED LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK PROOF - Rare, One of Only 100 Printed***
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2009. First edition, first printing. LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK PROOF. One of only 100 numbered proofs, SIGNED by the author. "The Angel's Game", like its predecessor, "The Shadow of the Wind" - set in the same fading grandeur and twisting streets of early-20th-century Barcelona - has also become an international phenomenon and a best-seller in dozens of countries. However, this particular format enjoyed a very low print run and is therefore of considerably higher collector appeal than either the Subterranean Press edition (which in any case was issued two years later) or the Waterstone's Limited Edition, both of which had much higher limitations.

A Very Fine copy, beautifully clean and well-preserved. In the gilt stamped maroon cloth boards, with "provisional UK publication date 1 June 2009" stamped to rear, as issued.
