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.

Advance Review Copy (Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1950). Light toning to edges; bump to bottom corner of rear board; slight compression to spine tips. Slight abrasion to tips of spine panel, else fine. An excellent copy.
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.
