Very Good, Jeeves
By P.G. Wodehouse
First edition, second impression (Herbert Jenkins, 1931).
Minor spine slant with some mild rolling to spine ends; gift inscription to front endpaper dated 1934; mild scattered foxing to edges; contents very nice and clean, except for a touch of very faint and occasional spotting to first and last few pages. Very good indeed.
The dust jacket has a significant amount of loss to spine ends and to lower panel with several small nicks and tears; occasional abrasion to edges and to fore-edge of upper panel; some discreet tape reinforcements to verso.
By Robert Bloch
First edition, first impression (Simon and Schuster, 1959). Adapted into the famous Alfred Hitchcock film in 1960.
Quarter-bound in cream cloth with black boards. Toning to edges with a chip to fore-edge of opening page of Chapter One and small closed tear to fore-edge of pages 5-9. Free from previous owner names and inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket is slightly smaller than the book, suggesting that it may have been trimmed; moderate rubbing and chipping in places with a tear to spine foot and to lower panel fore-edge, but still a very good copy overall.
