GAIMAN, Neil & PRATCHETT, Terry. Good Omens; The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. London: Victor Gollancz, 1990.
8vo. Original red cloth titled in black to spine, with dust wrapper; pp. x, 268; a near fine copy with a little very slight rubbing to the top edge of the wrapper.
First Edition, inscribed by both authors. This iconic apocalypse comedy hails from two of the most highly regarded names in modern fantasy. The book, which started out as a parody of the William books by Richmal Crompton, became the tale of the earth's final days as shepherded by the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley, in strict accordance with the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter.
This copy of Good Omens is signed and inscribed to the title page "Burn this book" by Gaiman, with a little doodle of a bat-winged hourglass. This doodle mimics the colophon found at the end of the book. Pratchett has followed this up with his own signature, adding a tiny "333" and also suggesting the buyer "burn this book". We humbly request that customers do not follow this advice. Copies of Good Omens with this provenance have become increasingly hard to find since the highly successful release of the Amazon Prime adaptation in 2019.
