Description:
London: Wylie, Aitken & Stone Literary Agents, 1988. A pre-publication copy of Rushdie's controversial work A pre-publication copy of Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, with his literary agent's US and UK contact details to the title page. The work is a photocopy of Rushdie's typescript, with his manuscript annotations and corrections all reproduced. The Satanic Verses was Rushdie's fourth novel and a major work in the magical realist canon. It was first published by Viking Penguin on 26 September 1988 and ignited furious controversy, leading to the book being banned and protested across the world, with the author placed under police protection for several years. In her account of the ensuring controversy, Appignanesi claims that alongside Viking Penguin eight other publishers bid for the work. A spokesperson for Viking stating that upon publication they "thought we had acquired, edited and published a literary book, and had no sense of the controversy that later emerged" (Appignanesi, p. 149).

Description:
Uncorrected Advance Proof Copy; Near Fine in wraps. SIGNED by the author on the half title page (the book has no title page as issued). A unique collectible for the Rushdie fan; the uncorrected proof is scarce in the marketplace, particularly signed. Near Fine with some mild rubbing and creasing to the edges and light soiling to the exterior text block. Not remaindered, not ex-library; in an archival bag and will ship in a sturdy box."One of the most controversial and acclaimed novels ever written, The Satanic Verses is Salman Rushdie's best-known and most galvanizing book. Set in a modern world filled with both mayhem and miracles, the story begins with a bang: the terrorist bombing of a London-bound jet in midflight. Two Indian actors of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil. This is just the initial act in a magnificent odyssey that seamlessly merges the actual with the imagined. A book whose importance is eclipsed only by its quality, The… Read more

Description:
London: Penguin. London, Penguin, 1988. Paperback. A good copy of a rare edition of the infamous book. The publication history of the book is a little sparse in places, particularly with regard to this edition. With the controversy surrounding the publication Penguin pulped the batch. There's no consesnus on how many remain, but most it appears were exported from the UK. Hard to find. Good with reading creases, some light edge wear. Some creasing to the upper and lower cover. Scuff to lower wrap. Price sticker remnant. A nice enough copy of a rare book. [8348, Hyraxia Books]. . Good. Paperback. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1988.
