The Handmaid's Tale.


A scarce signed first UK edition of what has become Margaret Atwood’s best-known novel. The Handmaid’s Tale is a dark & disturbing vision of a future all too readily believable, set in the monotheocracy of Gilead and following the misadventures of Offred, attached to the Handmaid class and made to suffer various injustices and indignities. The work has been recently made into a popular TV series, extending currently into three series, and the author has recently announced she will be writing a sequel to the original novel.

This copy signed on the title-page.


First UK edition, signed by the author; 8vo; publisher’s cloth-backed boards, dust-jacket with artwork by Fred Marcellino, slightly rubbed to extremities, otherwise a near-fine copy.
