1 Gordimer, Nadine The Conservationist
New York, NY, U.S.A. Viking Penguin 1975 0-670-23883-X / 9780670238835 First Edition, First Printing 
Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Tan boards quarterbound in brown cloth. The spine is stamped in green and gilt. Bright yellow topstain. Textured tan endpapers. 282pps. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear or previous owner's markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has modest wear to the extremities and along the top edge. There are, also, a couple of small abrasions on the front panel. The original price is intact. Winner of the Booker Prize.

Played out in vivid counterpoint to Mehring's memories and fantasies are the lives of those who serve but scarcely notice him -- his victims and his benefactors. And the overwhelming third presence is the calm beauty of the land they contend..."
