Children of Light
[London], Deutsch, [1986]. The uncorrected proof copy of the true first edition of his fourth novel, the British edition having preceded the American edition by one week. Inscribed by the author to author and critic David Lodge: "For David Lodge/ in happy recollection of New Zealand adventures -- until we meet again/ Robert Stone." The inscription is written inside the front cover as this copy, like all copies examined by Stone's bibliographer, Ken Lopez, has no preliminary pages prior to the text. A signed note from Lodge's son attesting to provenance is laid in. Small stains to covers; near fine in wrappers. A scarce proof of Stone's haunting Hollywood novel, and a nice association. [#036010] $375

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
