A Near Fine first printing of the first edition with some bumping to the boards housed in an unblemished dust-jacket, signed and inscribed by author Kazuo Ishiguro on the half-title page. There is a remainder stamping on the lower page edge.

Kazuo brings us a sensual and astoundingly visceral portrait of the artist as an aging man. This work is not only a tale that speaks to multiple generations and a samurai death poem, but also an epic that reveals the tension between the old and the new; Remainder.
