Description:
First Canadian edition, first impression (McClelland and Stewart, 1985). Signed and inscribed by the author to half-title: 'For Nancy - Best Wishes - Margaret Atwood'. Featuring striking dust jacket artwork by Tad Aronowicz. The true first edition, preceding that of the UK and the US. Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and more recently adapted into a successful TV series.

Quarter-bound in maroon cloth with cream boards and white lettering to spine. A fine and clean copy with some of the seemingly always present rubbing to the spine ends.

The original and unclipped dust jacket has a nick to spine foot, but is otherwise beautifully crisp and sharp.

A uniquely superior example of a classic of dystopian fiction.

Description:
First Canadian Edition (True First); A Near Fine book in a Very Good or better dust jacket. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to the half title page. An exceptional copy of this novel, critically acclaimed and now basis for the extraordinary mini-series; scarce in the first Canadian and signed by Ms. Atwood. This copy is in near fine condition with only slight rubbing to the spine ends, else fine; housed in a clean, crisp and bright very good dust jacket that shows only light rubbing at the spine ends, mild sunning to the spine, and one small closed tear to the spine head, repaired with one piece of tape to the verso (invisible externally). Overall, a beautiful copy of a novel some already consider a classic, and perhaps Atwood's best of her long and prolific career. Not remaindered, not price clipped, not ex-library; in a protective Mylar sleeve and will ship carefully wrapped in a sturdy box.

Description:
London: Jonathan Cape, 1986. First U.K. Edition. Atwood's chilling dystopian novel, set in "a world ruled by militaristic fundamentalists in which sexual pleasure is forbidden. Conception and childbirth have become difficult and the handmaid of the title belongs to a special breeding stock. The story is annotated by a historian of the future, whose shape is not revealed" (Barron, Anatomy of Wonder 4-31). Winner of the Governor General's Award, the first Arthur C. Clarke Award, and a nominee for both the 1986 Booker Prize and Nebula Award. Basis for Volker Schlöndorff's 1990 film adaptation, starring Natasha Richardson, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Duvall, as well as the Emmy Award-winning TV miniseries on HULU. Uncommon in the proof state, especially in the dustjacket. First Impression, with preliminary leaf giving a provisional publication date of 13 March 1986. Octavo (22.5cm); original red printed card wrappers; dustjacket; [12],13-324pp. Tiny bump and attendant tear at crown, faint crease to lower… Read More
