The Noise of Time (Jonathan Cape, 2016)

Notes on this edition: The first English language edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time was preceded in publication by the Dutch and Georgian translations. A very small quantity of dust jackets for the first edition were published with a printing error in which the red lettering was not applied (see example).
