By Iris Murdoch
First edition, first impression (Chatto & Windus, 1958). Signed by the author to the title page. Jacket design by Charles Mozley. The author’s fourth novel.
Publisher’s original green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Some darkening to top edge with very faint evidence of spotting to fore-edge; moderate bump to bottom edge of lower board with some off-setting to endpapers. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a few minuscule chips to spine head with a small tear to bottom fore-edge of upper panel; some toning to spine panel with some spotting and browning to verso. About near fine overall.
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.
Of Mice and Men
By John Steinbeck
US First Edition and First Impression with "pendula" on page 9, and a bullet between the numbers on page 88, which were removed from later printings. (New York: Covici Friede, 1937). One of only 2,500 copies printed in 1937. 8vo, publisher's beige cloth, front cover and spine stamped in black and orange; spine darkened with insect damage; corners bumped; dust jacket, price-clipped with a little soiling to rear panel and closed tear to front panel; spine panel and folds tanned with some edgewear.
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.
The Black Prince
By Iris Murdoch
First Edition and First Impression (Chatto & Windus, 1973). Light bumping to spine tips; spine slightly rolled. Original and unclipped dust jacket has a little wear to spine tips and extremities with hints of scuffing to rear panel. A near fine example.
