High-Rise.

Description

A fine inscribed first edition of this keystone dystopian work by J.G. Ballard, anticipating the breakdown of modern society, set amongst the then increasingly proliferate high-rise residential buildings that serve as a hothouse for class resentment, primeval instincts and capitalist excess gone mad. Successfully adapted for film by Ben Wheatley in 2015, starring Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller & Jeremy Irons.

Description

First edition, first printing, signed presentation copy from the author; 8vo; publisher’s boards, very slight tinge of sunning to extremities, dust-jacket by Craig Dodd, a little minor toning, but overall a very good, unclipped example, with the author’s portrait to lower flap.

Paul & Salli, inscribed to them from the author on the title-page.
