The basis for the Peter Sellers film of the same name
First edition, first impression hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 178pp.
The novel based on the Boulting Brothers' film of the same name which starred Peter Sellers, Cecil Parker et al. A mix up over two vicars of the same name leads to the wrong one being sent to the prosperous country town of Orbiston Parva where he attempts social justice and charitable good works, which all lead to trouble... A very 1960s social satire.
The book is in good condition and is in strong readable condition. The dustwrapper is tatty with tears to the joints and edges but is now within a protective sleeve.
