Printing Details

Second edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 239pp.

Nightwood tells the stories of the love-lives of a group of Americans and Europeans in Paris in the 1920s—an exotic, night-time underworld, eccentric, seedy and beautiful. One of the earliest novels to explicitly portray homosexuality. T S Eliot was an admirer and contributes an introduction.


The book is in very good condition, with some light amount of foxing to the prelims. The dustwrapper is tanned to the spine, has a small amount of loss to the spine ends and is creased to the front cover but is now within a protective sleeve.
