CHEVALIER, Tracy. Girl with a Pearl Earring. London: Harper Collins, 1999.

8vo. Original light blue cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; pictorial dust-jacket; decorative endpapers; pp. [viii], 3-248, [ii]; a fine copy, the jacket perhaps a touch faded, the pages a tad toned to edges.
First edition, signed by the author to the title page, and complete in the scarce first issue dust-jacket with the misspelling "Earing" on the rear panel. Tracy Chevalier's famous novel, inspired by the girl from one of Vermeer's most loved and mysterious paintings.
The basis for the Academy Award nominated movie starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth. Scarce thus.
