RARE 1st Issue Empire Of The Sun J G Ballard Gollancz 1984 UK H/B 2 Blurbs Rear

The Blurb



From the master of dystopia, comes his heartrending story of a British boy’s four year ordeal in a Japanese prison camp during the Second World War.

Based on J. G. Ballard’s own childhood, this is the extraordinary account of a boy’s life in Japanese-occupied wartime Shanghai – a mesmerising, hypnotically compelling novel of war, of starvation and survival, of internment camps and death marches. It blends searing honesty with an almost hallucinatory vision of a world thrown utterly out of joint.

Rooted as it is in the author’s own disturbing experience of war in our time, it is one of a handful of novels by which the twentieth century will be not only remembered but judged.

The Book


This is a Rare 1st Printing of the 1st UK hardback edition published by Gollancz in 1984. 


This is the rare 1st issue wrapper with only the two quotes to the rear panel of the wrapper.


A lovely smart copy in Very Good condition.

A little bumping to the head and foot, with some light toning to pages and a slight lean.

There is one neat ownership name to front endpaper. (see photo)


In a superb unfaded, unclipped 1st issue wrapper, with the price of £8.95 to front flap and only the two reviews to the rear panel. (The second issue wrapper has six)

A Near Fine example with a little creasing and one short closed tear of 1cm to top edge of rear panel.

The spine is not faded.
