The Man Booker Prize

All of the books on these pages are first editions and first printings


The Man Booker Prize, formerly known as just the Booker Prize, is recognised as the most prestigious literary award in the UK.

Established in 1969, it provides readers with the opportunity to review the year's best fiction. Often highly controversial, the prize attracts much media attention and high book sales. Many book collectors of modern fiction try to build a complete set of all shortlisted and winning titles.

A longlist is announced in the summer followed by the shortlist in September and the final award in late October. The prize is given to the best novel in the English Language published anywhere in the world.

During its 40 years the prize has been won by some of the most famous contemporary writers such as Salman Rushdie, J M Coetzee, Peter Carey, Kazuo Ishiguro, Graham Swift, Pat Barker, A S Byatt, Michael Ondaatje, Iris Murdoch, VS Naipaul and Margaret Atwood. Only J M Coetzee, Peter Carey and Hilary Mantel have won it twice.

Firsts in Print offers a wide range of Booker titles and would be pleased to help you fill the gaps in your collection.
