A lovely copy downgraded by a publishing flaw which caused the bottom portion only of one signature (section of pages) to be unbound, faintly rubbed corners. No slip case.; The first volume of the "Alexandria Quartet", four interlocking novels set in the Egyptian city of Alexandria during the 1930s and 40s. This edition uses the 1962 revised text and includes Durrell's 1962 preface as well as an introduction by Peter Porter. Basis for the 1969 film by George Cukor.; 'This is the best work of fiction I have read in some years."-Gerald Sykes,1957 NY Times..."The scene is dusty, modern Alexandria, and the milieu one that mixes exceptional sophistication with exceptional sordidness. The time is not stated, but it may be the Nineteen Thirties. The narrator is a penniless young Irish school teacher who gives a lecture on poetry and is about to go home to his mistress, a sad Greek dancing girl named Melissa, when he is sought out by the book's heroine, Justine, a beautiful Jewess married to Nessim, a sensitive Coptic millionaire."
