About this Item

First Impression of the author's important first novel. 8vo: 283, [1]pp. Publisher's rust-colored cloth with a matching top stain and the spine stamped in gilt; in a price-clipped first issue dust jacket (without reviews on the front flap) illustrated by Tom Adams. A Fine, bright example, probably unread, with a crimp to the head of the spine; in a just about Fine jacket, save for light soiling to the white back panel. A psychological thriller (and instant bestseller) about a repressed council clerk and butterfly collector, Edward Clegg, who kidnaps an art student, the talented, beautiful Miranda Grey. (The William Wyler film starred Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar.) Almost the entire novel is set in the claustrophobic confines of the cellar where Clegg keeps Miranda until she eventually dies of pneumonia. Note: 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 # BB0283
