London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. Book with a small bookseller's stamp on the front end paper, dust jacket with the spine possibly faded a touch, but a superior example nonetheless.Fowles' debut novel, The Collector set a new record for "the price that had hitherto been paid for a first novel" (Howard). The haunting story of obsession exists at the bridge between the modern and post-modern movements, playing with references to Shakespeare's The Tempest and shifting in each book to a different character's perspective. As each new character rises as narrator, a new method of storytelling emerges as well, complicating the novel's genre. Fine in Fine dust jacket.
