The Cairo Trilogy: Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, Sugar Street.
New York: Doubleday, 1990-1992. First American editions of author's most well known work; a trilogy originally published in Egypt in the 1950's and which garnered him the Nobel Prize in literature decades later in 1988. Octavo, 3 volumes. Original boards. Each volume is signed by Naguib Mahfouz. All three are fine in fine dust jackets. Books signed by Mahfouz are exceptionally rare as he left Egypt only twice during his life, each time only but for a short time.
