By John Wyndham
First Edition, First Impression (Michael Joseph, 1968). Adapted to radio in 1967 and into a TV drama in 1984. Light toning to edges; small bump to bottom corner of front board. Closed tear to top of spine panel hinge at rear; light wear to spine tips.
By Ray Bradbury
UK First Edition, First Impression (Rupert Hart-Davis 1954). A fine book in a very good unfaded dust wrapper that has not been price-clipped. Dust jacket has several small pinholes here and there. Crease to spine and a little rubbing to the corners. An excellent copy.
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 Acceptance World
By Anthony Powell
First Edition, First Impression (Heinemann, 1955). Presentation inscription by the author to front endpaper dated March 1973. The third novel in the 'A Dance to the Music of Time' series, which comprises twelve novels in total. Signed or inscribed copies of this title are very scarce. Spine tips and corners rubbed; marks to boards at front and rear; spine slightly darkened; edges toned; binding cracked at front and rear, but all pages still firmly adhered. Original and unclipped dust jacket has a neat tape repair to verso; light soiling to parts of rear panel and a couple of small closed tears to the top.
By Martin Amis
First Edition, First Impression (Jonathan Cape, 1978). Previous owners inscription to front endpaper; a little foxing to edges with slight compression to spine tips. Original, unclipped dust jacket has a crease to top of front panel of dust jacket and some general wear to the top. An excellent copy overall of the author's third novel.
