By Graham Greene
First American edition, first impression (Viking Press, 1938). True first edition, preceding that of the UK by around one month.
Publisher’s original red and black cloth with silver lettering to spine. A fine book with black top-stain beautifully preserved, internally clean and free from any inscriptions with a small previous owner sticker to front paste-down. The original, first issue George Salter jacket with $2.50 price to front flap has a touch of toning to spine panel, as is common, with light and occasional rubbing to extremities and a small closed tear to foot of upper joint.
An excellent, near fine or better copy of a rare title, especially in superior condition.
By Stephen King
UK First Edition, First Printing (New English Library, 1976). Signed and inscribed by the author to the the title page: 'For Dave, Remember: they only come out at night. Stephen King 5/14/83'. Very rare title, of which signed and inscribed copies in such fine condition are very scarce. Fine in a fine dust jacket.
The Day of the Triffids
By John Wyndham
First Edition, First Impression (Michael Joseph 1951). Contemporary previous owner's inscription to front paste-down, which is covered by dust jacket; corners of front board lightly bumped; light toning to edges. Corners of original and unclipped dust jacket are rubbed with a little loss, a couple of tears to top and bottom of hinges of front and rear panels; marks to top and bottom of rear panel and minor loss to spine tips. A very good copy of a science fiction classic.
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.
Our Man in Havana
By Graham Greene
First edition, first impression (William Heinemann Ltd, 1958). Signed, inscribed and dated by the author to half-title the year after publication: 'For Tim Pearce from Graham Greene Aug 1959'.
Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A hint of toning and spotting to edges with very slight knocking to corners; a couple of unobtrusive stamps to bottom corner of front endpaper and pastedown with a little faint spotting to preliminaries; free from any names or inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a 15mm closed tear to top of upper panel hinge and a couple of very small nicks to top corner and spine head; some toning to spine and marginal toning to lower panel. An excellent copy overall.
