H IS FOR HAWK. *** SIGNED U.K. 1st EDITION / 1st PRINTING - and DATED on the DAY OF PUBLICATION! ***
Jonathan Cape 2014 - First edition, first printing. SIGNED to title page in black ink. However, this copy is further distinguished since it is also DATED on the actual DAY OF PUBLICATION itself by Helen Macdonald: 31 July 2014. A wonderfully special copy thus. Very Fine (As New) in Very Fine (As New) protected dustwrapper. A simply stunning, immaculate copy indeed without any detractions. The jacket is the correct first state with three endorsements to rear and priced at £14.99. A book that continues to demonstrate superb growth in rarity value. Winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction, in November 2014, and also the 2014 Costa Book of the Year winner - a superb, double prize-winner. A unique, lyrical depiction of the relationship between human and wild falcon that led the judges of the Samuel Johnson prize to name H is for Hawk the winner of the most prestigious accolade in nonfiction. Part misery memoir, part naturalist diary, the book, documenting Macdonald's attempts to win the trust of her goshawk Mabel as she struggled to deal with the death of her father, was described by the chair of the judging panel, Claire Tomalin, as "an extraordinary book that displayed an originality and a poetic power. None of us on the panel were either naturalists or wildlife enthusiasts but this book just took hold of us." Please refer to images. D. B.
