Things Fall Apart
ACHEBE, Chinua

Category: First Edition

London, Heinemann. 1958.


First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket designed by C.W. Bacon. Okonkwo famous throughout West Africa as a wrestler and warrior, but when he accidentally kills a clansman, things fall apart. On his return from exile he finds missionaries and colonial governors in his village. A classic, this novel reshaped African and world literature. It has sold ten million copies in 45 languages, and remains an arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people. Very good, spine slightly faded, slight shelf lean. The dust jacket is age toned, small loss to upper cover just touching "T" of first word of title, small loss to spine ends and a few other small nicks, lower cover browned with a few abrasions to blank areas, thread of loss along lower fold.

Price £2500.00
