The Edible Woman
Toronto, McClelland and Stewart, 1969. First printing. Hardcover. pp. 281. Small 8vo. Maroon paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. Crease to spine, boards show offsetting from now-removed tape, numbered stamp to dedication page, contents crisp and unmarked save for smudge to one margin. Unusually tight, sound binding suggests that the endpapers are newer. Dustjacket shows some scuffing to edges, lightly sunned spine, long (repaired) closed tear to rear panel; the iconic jacket art remains vivid! . Spadoni & Donnelly, 2068. Printed by Hazell Watson and Viney Ltd. A "protofeminist" (-Atwood) classic in the canon of Margaret Atwood, the internationally renowned, critically acclaimed Canadian novelist whose star continues to rise even 50 years after the publication of this book.
