Publisher’s original black cloth with silver lettering to spine. A few very small dings to board edges; slight toning to edges, near fine otherwise in a near fine dust jacket with very slight fading to spine panel and light evidence of edge wear, primarily to spine head. An excellent copy.
George's Marvellous Medicine

First Edition, First Impression (Jonathan Cape, 1981). Signed by Road Dahl to a cut signature slip affixed to the title page. Spine ends and bottom corner of front board bumped; light foxing/soiling here and there to edges. Original dust jacket is price-clipped with a little wear to extremities.
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 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.
