This lovely cloth-bound hardback is a first edition, published by alkitab; there is no date of publication but it was likely published in 1956. The book contains 254 pages accompanied by numerous illustrations by S. Safdar. The stories were translated into English by Hamid Jalal (Manto's nephew), and the book's front free endpaper is inscribed by members of the Jalal and Manto families, including two of Manto's daughters and his sister-in-law. Also provided with this book are several Manto-related newspaper cuttings from the 1980s onwards. The book is in very good condition. The corner of the cover plate is very slightly chipped at one corner. Boards are generally clean, though slightly worn at the corners. Page edges are slightly foxed, and there is foxing to the endpapers. But the binding is firm and the main text in excellent condition, with no major flaws, and overall this book is in excellent condition given its age and rarity. This book is brought to you by Babar's Bibliotheca:
