Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
By J.K. Rowling
First edition, first impression of the Deluxe Edition (Bloomsbury, 1999). The title was originally published the previous year. A couple of small and faint marks to upper board with a trivial hint of a knock to spine head, fine otherwise. A great example.
The Word Child
By Iris Murdoch
First Edition, First Impression (Chatto & Windus, 1975) Small bump to spine foot, else fine. Original and unclipped dust jacket has very slight fading to spine panel with signs of trivial wear to extremities. An excellent copy.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
By J. K. Rowling
First edition, first impression of the Deluxe Edition (Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 1999). A beautiful and unusually fine example which presents as unread.
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.
