The novel based on the Boulting Brothers' film of the same name which starred Peter Sellers, Cecil Parker et al. A mix up over two vicars of the same name leads to the wrong one being sent to the prosperous country town of Orbiston Parva where he attempts social justice and charitable good works, which all lead to trouble... A very 1960s social satire.
The book is in good sound shape with secure binding. The pages are clean but there is browning to the endpapers and page edges. The dustwrapper is intact but tanned to the spine and creased to the edges with very small areas of loss. However, it has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
