London: Jonathan Cape, (1987). First Trade Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Octavo. 5.5 x 8.75 in. 293 pp. Inexpensive paper used in the text block which is just beginning to tone, as usual, otherwise a fine copy in original black boards and a fine pictorial dust jacket with faint wear to corners. Item #18714
Signed by Bruce Chatwin on the title page. Not to be confused with the relatively common London Limited Editions issue, this first trade edition is very scarce signed. A lovely copy of the author's most important book.
