Condición del libro: Good
Edición: First Edition.
First edition, first printing hardback. Bound in the original cloth covered boards with gilt titling to spine. 20.5 × 13cm. 216pp. Two sisters: beautiful, sophisticated Louise and attractive, witty and intelligent Sarah who has always felt left behind. Then Louise marries the wealthy but unappealing novelist Stephen Halifax, and Sarah, recently graduated from Oxford, is thrown back into family affairs. As Louise enters a high-profile world of glamour, parties and gossip columns, Sarah, drifting in London with her degree and new-found freedom, is only allowed glimpses into this new alien life. However, as the cracks begin to show in Louise's marriage and rumours of infidelity spread, Sarah discovers that, beneath her cool exterior, her sister is not quite the person she thought she was. Condition: Quite a rough copy of a scarce copy. The red cloth is dulled and is rubbed and bumped to the edges. There is a slight lean to the spine and the ages are age-toned, with foxing to the page edges and endpapers. However, it remains a scarce first edition of the author's first book.
