Visit to Morin

Graham Greene

"SO YOU HAVE READ SOME OF MY BOOKS?": FIRST EDITION OF GRAHAM GREENE'S A VISIT TO MORIN, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES PRINTED

GREENE, Graham. A Visit to Morin. London, Melbourne, Toronto: Heinemann, (1959). Slim octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase. $800.

First edition of Greene's powerful story about faith, one of only 250 copies printed.

"A Visit to Morin tells of a young man's shock at the confessions of a once-famous Catholic writer—confessions that include the loss of religious beliefs, though the writer subtly differentiates 'belief' from something called 'faith' which he claims he still has" (New York Times). A Visit to Morin was first published in the London Magazine and was later included in Greene's 1963 short story collection, Under the Garden. Miller 39a.

A fine copy of a rare work.
