Very fine, new, clean, crisp and unread stated First United States Edition. Published in Japan in three volumes, in the UK in two volumes and in the US in this one impressive volume. This is the first printing beautifully produced and bound in rather spectacular photographic boards with the close-up of the woman's face to the front and the close-up of the man's to the back, elegant set of seven black/white/gray endpapers begin with the double moon in the night sky which carries thru the multiple titles pages to the " It's a Barnum and Bailey world, it's only a Paper Moon" quotation page. The equally excellent semi-opaque dust jacket is by the talented Chip Kidd. In 1Q84 Murakami once again weaves a dream-like, spell-binding and complex narrative that holds the reader in his magical thrall.
