Brave New World
Brave New World
First edition, first impression (Chatto & Windus, 1932).
Half-bound in brown morocco with black labels and gilt lettering. Blue top-stain present; some toning to edges with small areas of soiling to fore-edges of pages 2 and 3; a little faint and very occasional spotting to contents; trivial mark to lower spine visible upon close inspection. A near fine copy overall.
The Remains of the Day
By Kazuo Ishiguro
Rare Uncorrected Advance Proof copy (Faber and Faber). Fading to bottom edge of front and rear covers and to spine; couple of discreet creases to bottom edge of rear cover. A very good example.
By Stephen King
UK First Edition, First Impression (New English Library 1977 with the code 'R49' present on page 447). The print run for the US First Edition was 25,000 and, given the low print runs of the UK editions of 'Carrie' and 'The Stand', which consisted of just 500 and 1000 copies respectively, the UK First Edition of 'The Shining' is likely to be considerably rarer than that of the US. Small bump to top of spine; edges toned and lightly foxed; a little off-setting to front endpaper and front board slightly bowed at the bottom. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some rubbing, chipping and wear to the top with a stain to the inside, and is now protected in a high-quality archival cover. A good copy of a contemporary classic.
The Outward Urge
By John Wyndham
First Edition, First Impression (Michael Joseph, 1959). Light toning to edges; dustiness to top edge of text block; spotting to top edge of and rear paste-downs. Original and unclipped dust jacket has a closed tear to top edge of front panel; some abrasion and a small nick to bottom corner; abrasion to top edge of spine panel; light edgewear with some soiling to rear panel.
By Thomas Pynchon
First Edition, First Impression (Viking, 1973). Winner of the 1974 National Book Award and one of 4,000 copies in hardcover. First Issue dust jacket with the ISBN lettered in white over red on the rear panel and publishers date code '0273' on lower front flap. Couple of minor bumps and a little rubbing to corners of boards, contents pristine. Price-clipped dust jacket has a few soft creases and a little abrasion to top corner of rear panel. An excellent example of a novel considered by some to be among the greatest American Novels.
