Station Island.

London: Faber and Faber, 1984. First edition. Published in a run of 3,000 copies.

Bound in black cloth over boards with gilt spine titling. Fine in fine dust wrapper. Together with the first edition in wrappers, issued in a run of 10,000 copies by Faber and Faber simultaneous to the version in boards. Very good in pictorial wrappers.
