By Vladimir Nabokov
First edition, first impression (Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1959). Publisher’s original black cloth with silver lettering to spine. A fine and clean book, free from any previous owner names or inscriptions, in a near fine or better dust jacket with just a little rubbing and a couple of very tiny nicks to spine tips. A superb example.
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.
I Am Legend
By Richard Matheson
First edition, first impression (Walker & Co, 1954). Signed, inscribed and dated by the author to the front endpaper: '7/08 To Bruce - all best - Richard Matheson'. 8vo, publisher's white cloth, spine stamped in black. Light toning to edges. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a tiny nick to top edge and small 6mm closed tear to bottom edge of rear panel; very faint toning to spine panel. A fine copy otherwise. Famously adapted to film as 'The Last Man on Earth' in 1964, 'The Omega Man' in 1971 and 'I am Legend' in 2007.

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.
