Published in London by Folio Society. 2011. First Thus. 3 Fine Hardbacks. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. 3 volumes. Bound in paper, printed with individual designs by Tom Burns. Set in Aldus with Mahlau display. 848 pages in total. Frontispiece and 6 colour illustrations per volume. Book Size: 9" x 6". A charming, obliging young man ready to turn a hand to any kind of work; a discerning art collector and bon viveur; a cold-blooded killer Tom Ripley is many things to many people. First published in 1955, The Talented Mr Ripley introduced one of the 20th century's most memorable and chilling fictional creations. As Ripley progresses from downtrodden youth to wealthy, epicurean murderer, we recoil at his crimes yet, somehow, find ourselves willing him to succeed. When writing The Talented Mr Ripley, Patricia Highsmith said that she was 'showing the unequivocal triumph of evil over good, and rejoicing in it. I shall make my readers rejoice in it, too.' Now The Folio Society presents 3 classic Ripley novels - The Talented Mr Ripley, Ripley Under Ground and Ripley's Game - together in a superbly illustrated set.
