First edition, second impression. Hardback bound in the original red cloth. 22 × 14cm, 299pp. As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colourful delights of Queen Elizabeth's court. By the close, he will have transformed into a modern, 36-year-old woman and three centuries will have passed. Orlando will not only witness the making of history from its edge, but will find that his unique position as a woman who knows what it is to be a man will give him insight into matters of the heart. Condition: A good reading copy. The red cloth is faded to the spine and a little frayed to the top of the front joint. This was probably and ex-circulating library copy as a label has been removed from the upper board, as well as from the front pastedown and ffep. However, the main body of text is in good clean condition and is well-bound.
