1 Ishiguro, Kazuo The Remains of the Day
New York Alfred a Knopf Inc 1989 0394573439 / 9780394573434 First Edition Hard Cover 
Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray boards quarterbound in navy blue cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Red topstain. Octavo. 245pps. There is a vague pencil-erasure (of price) in the upper corner of the ffep., otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is faintly sunned; the original price (18.95) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy. Winner of the 1989 Booker Prize and basis for the excellent Merchant-Ivory film.

"A profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world postwar England. At the end of his three decades of service at Darlington Hall, Stevens embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving 'a great gentleman.' But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington’s 'greatness' and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served."
