1963, John Fowles, The Collector, Signed & Inscribed First Edition, Stark, Powerful

Fowles, John. The Collector. London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. Octavo, gilt stamped cloth with DJ, 283 pages. First Edition. Inscribed and Signed by Fowles.

John Robert Fowles (1926-2005) was a well-regarded English novelist. Influenced by Sartre and Camus, Fowles bridged the gap of modernism and postmodernism with an existentialist atheism marked by integrity and intelligence. Considered by many to be among the leading thinkers of the 20th century, Fowles began his literary career with this somewhat disturbing 1963 First Edition now offered for your consideration: The Collector.

Of further interest is the inscription and signature from Fowles on the title page which reads: “Allen McGuire, To a collector – of more innocent things! John Fowles, Lyme, 2 July 1985”

Condition notes: Very good. This octavo, measuring 7 ¾ inches by 5 inches, is bound in gilt blocked cloth complete with the dust jacket; this is price-clipped. Light foxing to fore edge (please see photo), the overall tenor of this First Edition of the First Novel by John Fowles, Inscribed and Signed by him, is very good.
