Watership Down by Richard Adams


Presumed book club edition.   Identical to the true first in size and design, but with no number line on copyright page.  Price absent on front panel of dust jacket.

Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition.

Dust jacket would be near mint; if not for a sealed tear near top of spine [see photos] -- otherwise pristine and looking spectacular in a new archival quality mylar jacket.

Book itself has some staining to edge of rear boards.  Otherwise mint.  Inside, pages are bright, clean and unread.  Reads like new. 

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for over thirty years, Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. 

Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of very special creatures on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home.

Led by a stouthearted pair of friends, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.
