Tom Stoppard
London: Faber and Faber, 1975. First UK Edition. From an obscure footnote in Ulysses, Stoppard spins a fantastically elaborate scenario: A minor British consular official named Henry Carr reminisces about Zürich in 1917 during the First World War, and his interactions with James Joyce (when he was writing Ulysses), Tristan Tzara (during the rise of Dada), and Lenin (before the Russian Revolution).


Approx. 5" x 8" VG hardcover in VG dustjacket. Rubbing to corners and spine ends of slightly cocked boards. Age-toned dustjacket retains original UK price on unclipped front flap; superficial scuffing and creases with wear along fore-edges; small chips to spine ends and corners and a short tear from top front edge that previous owner repaired with clear tape on the topside. Jacket now protected in clear mylar overlay. Light soiling to edges of text block. Very mild foxing to endpapers. Shelve in Case #0.



Price: $150.00
