The Immortals

Price: £175.00

Quantity: 1 available


UK first edition in a dust jacket. As the title suggests and the jacket artwork further indicates, a novel about the discovery of a serum that grants immortality, the couple who make use of it and the events in the wider world following its discovery. By way of an introduction the novel also features a brief appearance from Isaac, the legendary Wandering Jew, who is baffled by humanity's desire for eternal life and is seeking the scientist who has allegedly discovered the serum, in the hope that he may also be able to find a cure for immortality. A notable rarity as a UK first edition, particularly so in the original dust jacket. The book is reasonably firmly bound in slightly rubbed, bumped and mottled boards, with minor loss to the cloth at points. The text block is lacking the front endpaper and opens at the half-title, it is toned and dusty, but free from inscriptions. The dust jacket is the original and correctly priced at 7/6 to the spine, it is slightly marked and grubby, with some loss and short closed tears to the edges.
