About this Item

First Impression (no further printings noted), with the uncommon promotional wraparound band, "The Star Thriller of the Month." Small 8vo: 192pp. Publisher's scarlet cloth, spine lettered in black, dust jacket priced 10s/6d. Faint spotting to top edge, leaves toned at margins (as usual), touch of wear to edges of jacket, but a Fine, bright, unread copy. Anatomy of Wonder II-401. Horror Literature 4-116. Originally published in Colliers, in 1954. Finney's chilling classic, retitled Invasion of the Body Snatchers for its four film incarnations, takes place in the idyllic rural community of Mill Valley, which is invaded by seeds that have drifted to Earth from space. The seeds replace sleeping humans with perfect physical duplicates grown from plant-like pods, while their victims turn to dust. The author's second (and most important) book, originally serialized in Colliers. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1219
