First Edition, Hardcover, Very Fine, Very Fine. Book. 
Hardcover first edition, first printing and first US edition. (Simultaneous with the UK edition by Faber and Faber, but the time zone difference makes the UK the true first edition.) Stated First Edition with printing date "03/2015" on rear jacket flap, making it a March, 2015 first printing. Signed by Ishiguro on publisher's tipped-in sheet. Ishiguro is also winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. This copy also has the publisher's black stain on the page edges. (Copies are already in multiple printings. These later printings have plain white page edges as opposed to the black-stained edges.) The book's green jacket is un-laminated, making it prone to scratches. This jacket is pristine without the "Signed First Edition" sticker present. Caution to collectors: Removing the Signed First Edition sticker can scratch off the jacket's green ink from the jacket cover. There is no sticker on this copy and the jacket is in fine condition. "It's a sad, elegiac story, one that has a tone and texture suited to its subject matter: a dreamy journey, repetitive and searching as lost memory." Lydia Millet - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review. Award History: 2016 World Fantasy Award Nominee for Best Novel (lost to The Chimes by Anna Smaill).(Sceptre)
