This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

You don't need to worry about upper and lower case in this search. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells". You can use the wildcard * in this form to look for parts of words - lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.

Damien Hirst - The Cancer Chronicles (SIGNED FIRST EDITION)

Other Criteria, London
1st printing. Octavo size (8vo) in stiff glossy card covers, 36pp. First printing of Hirst's poetry done to accompany his White Cube exhibition 'Romance in the Age of Uncertainty'. This copy boldly signed by Hirst in black ink on the title-page. This first printing of 2003 was of about 1200 machine numbered copies (no one at Other Criteria has been able to give a precise figure). Of these about 200 were signed, but not all at once, as Hirst would sign a fresh bunch every now and again until stocks dried up. Hence also why some are done in black ink and others in red.
