The Man Booker Prize.... The Man Booker Prize...
A complete set (to 2011 - 45 titles) of the world’s most prestigious literary prize for modern fiction. First UK editions; the set also includes several first editions when they precede the UK ones.
Instituted in 1969, the Booker Prize (as it is often, if now incorrectly, referred to) is awarded to the best novel in the English language by a Commonwealth or Irish citizen and published in the UK - not, as is sometimes assumed, to its author. That said, it virtually guarantees the author worldwide publicity, often with a spike in sales of earlier books - unless, of course, it’s his or her first book, as has been the case on a few occasions.
Almost all are in fine condition, a few in very good to near fine; some are signed. Together with three Booker-related volumes. Additional information on request.
