About This Item

Belmont Press, London, 2000. First edition, one of 150 special copies (from a total edition of 250) signed by both the author and artist and with an additional colour print initialled by the artist, housed in a rear pocket. 8vo. 74pp. Leather-backed decorated paper-covered boards, lettered in silver at the spine. With a colour frontispiece, four full-page colour paintings and three half-page colour paintings by Eileen Hogan. In fine state bar the additional colour print, which exhibits a single tiny crease to the tip of one corner. No dust wrapper or slipcase called for. An eight-page introduction by the author precedes three early short stories set in Japan, two of them written between 1979-80 when Ishiguro was studying at Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, and one a little later in 1982 just after the publication of his first novel. The first story, 'A Strange and Sometimes Sadness', was originally published in the literary magazine 'Bananas' in June 1980; the second story, 'A Family Supper', appeared in the journal 'Quarto' sometime the same year; and the third story, 'The Summer After the War', was originally printed in 'Granta', spring 1982. Illustrated four-page pre-publication prospectus laid-in.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine.
