The Road to Lichfield

Modern First Editions – Booker Prize Shortlist – Signed

Penelope Lively

Published by Heinemann, London, 1977. This is Penelope Lively’s mother’s copy inscribed “With love from Penelope, Oct 1977” It comes with two press cuttings from 1977 that her mother saved. No other signed copy exists to the best of our knowledge, especially with this provenance. Her mother’s small elegant bookplate is affixed to the inside front end page. The book is in very good condition with some slant and bruising to the spine with small fading to the top of the board edges and minor foxing to the foredge. Small discolouration on the front end page and a small mark on the title page. Dustwrapper is similarly very good. Small wear to the edges and foxing a little foxing to the flaps.
