By Dick King-Smith
First edition, first impression published by Gollancz in 1983. Illustrations and dust jacket art by Mary Rayner. Famously adapted to cinema in 1995 under the title ‘Babe’.
Original dark blue cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. A fine book in a very good or better dust jacket with a couple of small tears to bottom edge and one very small nick to spine head. A lovely, bright example.
A House for Mr Biswas
By V.S. Naipaul
First American edition, first impression (McGraw-Hill, 1961). Jacket design by Stephen Russ.
Original dark green cloth with white lettering to spine. Just a hint of knocking and rubbing to extremities, else fine and internally pristine without names or inscriptions. The original dust jacket is clipped to bottom corner of front flap, but still bears the original '$5.95' price; a few small nicks to spine head with a touch of rubbing here and there. A lovely and bright near fine copy of the author's most iconic work.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
By J.K. Rowling
First edition, first impression (Bloomsbury, 2007). Signed and inscribed by the author to the title page: 'To Scott, best wishes, J. K. Rowling'. Rare inscribed.
Very small and unobtrusive initials to bottom corner of front endpaper with partial toning to bottom edge. A little trivial and very occasional edge wear to extremities of dust jacket, else fine. An excellent, near fine copy overall.
