By Daphne du Maurier
First edition, first impression (Victor Gollancz, 1936). Adapted to film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1939. Rebound in dark blue morocco with gilt lettering to spine. Usual spotting to edges and to contents, mainly to opening pages, with blue ink mark to copyright page and opening page of Chapter 1. Very good.
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.
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 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.
An Accidental Man
By Iris Murdoch
First Edition and First Impression (Chatto & Windus, 1971). Minor bumping to spine tips. Original and price-clipped dust jacket has some rubbing to corners and extremities; corners and spine tips chipped; spotting to front and rear flaps. A very good copy.
