This volume is a First edition and First printing from the legendary Grove Press. The book is in very fine condition with the least bit of shelf-wear to the extreme top of the spine panel of the dustjacket. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. All corners are square and the book does not appear to have ever been read. The textblock is pristine and there is a guide to abbreviations of about ten pages in the rear of the book. The book is 322 pages long. Lawrence Norfolk's award-winning novels 'Lempriere's Dictionary' and 'The Pope's Rhinoceros' have won acclaim around the world for their dynamic, intellectual sweep and literary achievement. The story begins in the ancient Greece of myth, where the king has assembled the sixty greatest hunters and one huntress named Atalanta. The goal is to rid his realm of the supernatural boar sent by the vengeful goddess Artemis to lay waste to his lands. But a darker tale unfolds, of treachery and destructive love. It is a tale that will reverberate through those same hills across the millennia during the final chaotic months of the second World War. This is a mesmerizing epic of love and betrayal, ancient myths and modern horrors that spans the ages. A beautiful Grove Press First edition and a wonderful novel to enjoy. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
