A Town Like Alice, by Nevil Shute. First Edition.

£4.99

Product description

1st Edition: 1950. Scarce in dust jacket. One of Nevil Shute's best loved novels, it is based on his experience of life in the Australian Outback.

This book is in fair condition, in a poor dust jacket. The text block is clean, with its red top edge; the endpapers are darkened, and there is a library stamp on the f.e.p. The title on the spine is clear, while the title on the front board is faded. The dust jacket is unclipped, but it has many tears, some held together with tape inside, and pieces are missing from the front and spine.
