About this Item

First English Edition. The basis of the superior Hollywood thriller, Psycho, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The dust jacket of the American edition is a rather simple typographical design, whereas, what sets this British first edition apart is the surreal colorful jacket illustration with the purple-tinted profile of the brutally slashed victim, Mary Crane (memorably portrayed by Janet Leigh in the film), the hazy image of the spooky Bates house in the background, and the figure of the tormented murderer, Norman Bates (Anthony PerkinÕs most recognized role), in the foreground. Near fine in a fine bright dust jacket with only a trace of wear, and a couple of tiny date numbers stamped on the front flap. Bookseller Inventory # 10408E
