About This Item

London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2014. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2014. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 327 pages. The author's fourteenth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Howard Jacobson's "J". "A snarling, effervescent, and ambitious philosophical work of fiction". "Poses unsettling questions about our sense of history, and our self-satisfied orthodoxies. Jacobson's triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling from the debris" (The Independent). "A real giant. A great, great writer" (Jonathan Safran Foer). An absolute "must-have" title for Howard Jacobson collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (shortly after publication) in black pen on the title page by the author: "Howard Jacobson London 14-9-2014". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed, placed, and post-publication dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The British Edition significantly precedes the American. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Booker Prize in 2010 for "The Finkler Question". Finalist for the Booker Prize in 2014 for "J". One of the greatest novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HOWARD JACOBSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0553419552.

About Modern Rare

ModernRare.com is exclusively an online bookstore. We believe this is the best way to satisfy our customers' expectations. Unlike an open bookstore, where books are routinely handled and may deteriorate, we guarantee the condition of our books as described. We specialize in modern firsts, photography, the arts, and erotica. You will also find a fine selection of signed copies, limited editions, and memorabilia because our ultimate goal is to deepen the pleasure of collecting books. We carry titles that we ourselves like and believe in -- books that we think will excite, enchant, and endure.
