The Ginger Man, J.P. Donleavy
Second edition of Donleavy's first and best-known work, which was initially banned in Ireland and the U.S. by reason of obscenity, in the second state jacket with new flaps adhered. Paris: The Olympia Press, 1958. A near fine copy in a very good or better, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, minor softening to spine tips. Internally clean with no markings. The dust jacket remains bright and vivid with light shelfwear, mainly along the top edge, and a trace of foxing to flaps, protected in archival mylar. A very presentable copy.
