By Cormac McCarthy
First UK edition, first impression (Picador, 1989).
Publisher’s original red cloth with white lettering to spine and white endpapers and paste-downs. A fine book with some toning to edges, but otherwise clean internally and free from names and inscriptions.
The original and unclipped dust jacket has only trivial traces of edge wear, primarily to spine foot, fine otherwise.
An excellent copy of what is widely considered to be the author’s best work and one of the best American novels.
By Martin Amis
First Edition, First Printing (Jonathan Cape, 1975). Signed by the author to a sticker affixed to the title page. The author's second novel following 'The Rachel Papers' published in 1973. Near fine with previous owner's inscription to front endpaper; edges lightly foxed. Original and unclipped dust jacket is fine with minimal rubbing to corners. A really excellent copy of the author's second novel.
A Fairly Honourable Defeat
By Iris Murdoch
First Edition, First Impression (Chatto and Windus, 1970). A little compression to spine foot and light soiling to top edge of text block. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some wear to extremities and a stain to verso covered by front flap.
A Partisan's Daughter

Limited, First Edition, First Printing (Harvill Secker, 2008). One of only 100 numbered copies to be signed by the author, of which this is number 49. Book is fine in a fine slipcase.
By Stephen King
First edition, first impression (Doubleday & Company Inc, 1978), with S52 to rear margin and price of $8.95 to front flap. Signed, inscribed and dated by the author to the front endpaper: "For Stanley All Best, Stephen King 1/15/82".
The author's first short story collection. Winner of the Balrog Award for Best Collection and nominated as best collection in 1979 for the Locus Award and World Fantasy Award. One of a small print run, when compared to previous titles, of around 12,000 copies.
Fine book. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a little rubbing and a couple of tiny nicks and chips to spine tips; small and inconspicuous closed tear to head of front panel and to top fore-edge of upper and lower panels with original price label to lover panel crossed over in biro.
A near fine example overall.
