Publisher's full light green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g. (red), fore-edge deckle. The Magus (1966) is the first novel written (but second published) by British author John Fowles. It tells the story of Nicholas Urfe, a teacher on a small Greek island. Urfe finds himself embroiled in psychological illusions of a master trickster that become increasingly dark and serious. The novel was a bestseller, partly because it tapped successfully into, and then arguably helped to promote, the 1960s popular interest in psychoanalysis and mystical philosophy.. This is an unmarked copy, tight and square. The price-clipped dust jacket, now in mylar, is sunned along the top edge only and is chipped, with some loss, at the head and heel of the spine, and has a small closed tear on the front panel.
