WELSH, Irvine. Trainspotting. London: Secker and Warburg Ltd., 1993.

First edition, signed by Irvine Welsh to the title page.
A memorable novel of heroin addiction, lethargy and violence in 1980s Scotland which went on to become the basis for the phenomenally successful 1996 Danny Boyle film starring Ewan McGregor. The first edition of this book is scarce, preceding the movie and its subsequent cultural uproar by three years.
