HomeRetro Reads

This is a First Edition of Nevil Shute's novel' Beyond the Black Stump' which means to an Australian the country at the back of beyond, the outback or the edge of the world. It is a novel comparing an unconventional family living in a remote part of Australia with that of a conventional family living in Washington State. I cannot read the signature of the designer of the dust wrapper but it is an Australian landscape painting which continues to the back cover. Published by Heinemann in 1958.(We have other novels by Nevil Shute and First Editions)

SIZE: 13x19cm/5.2 x7.5 inches

CONDITION:Good condition. Some 'foxing' to the compressed outside edges of the first 25 pages but reading pages are clear and no tears. There is browning to the very first blank page and a stamp to the bottom which reads THE BOOK STALL BOMBAY. The red boards are clean and not faded and the gilt lettering is good. The dust wrapper is clear and bright but has suffered to the edges particularly to the top of the spine and the front flap fold. It is not terribly tatty but needed to be mentioned.
