Durrell, Lawrence. NUNQUAM. New York City, NY: E. P. Dutton, 1970. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 318 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's companion-novel to "Tunc". One of Lawrence Durrell's greatest achievements. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Lawrence Durrell's "Nunquam". "Tunc" and "Nunquam" are jointly called "The Revolt of Aphrodite" by its late great author. Written in the legendary Durrell-ian grand style that Truman Capote once described as "like drinking champagne" (instead of well, plain tap water), the narrative revolves around a brilliant young inventor working for an all-powerful international company called Merlin. He creates a perfect robot-facsimile of a beautiful woman. An absolute "must-have" title for Lawrence Durrell collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and despite its slight imperfection (wear on one DJ corner) is still in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It is priced accordingly. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. . ISBN 3499115956. $30.00
