New York: George Braziller, 1991. First American Edition. Item #1217
First Printing. Octavo; black paper over boards, quarterbound in white cloth with titles stamped in gilt on the spine; 161pp. Fine in a Fine, unclipped dustjacket. The Turkish Nobel Prize-winner's first novel. While the book was successful enough to merit a second printing within the year of publication, as the author was virtually unknown to English language readers, the first printing was miniscule - little more than 1,000 copies.
