By Ursula Le Guin
First edition, second impression of the Omnibus Edition (Victor Gollancz, 1978). The edition was first published the previous year. Hint of compression to spine tips; toning to edges – near fine. A little light wear to edges of original and unclipped dust jacket with a chip to top of lower panel fore-edge; no fading to spine panel – Very good.
East of Eden
By John Steinbeck
UK First Edition, First Printing (Heinemann, 1952). Originally published in the US earlier the same year. Original publisher's green cloth. Some soiling/dustiness to head of text block; boards are nice and clean, but there is minor compression to spine tips. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some faint soiling to front and rear panels; tape repairs to verso; a few small closed tears and some edge wear to extremities. A very good copy overall.
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.
By Stephen King
Limited edition (Grant, 1983). Signed by Stephen King and the illustrator, Stephen Gervais. One of 1000 copies, of which this is number 216. A couple of small bumps to bottom corners of slipcase. Minor bump to top of spine. A near fine copy. Bookseller Inventory.
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.
