About this Item

First US edition, first printing (stated "First Edition" on the copyright page) of the author's spellbinding debut novel. It is difficult for me to easily assign a condition term to this particular book: overall, "very good", I would say. It has two flaws, one trivial, the other more serious - other than these, the book is crisp and fine, a lovely copy. The trivial flaw is a small name written at the top left corner of the front pastedown, hidden by the flap. The other problem is a small splash mark to the fore-edge. When the book is closed, this mark appears to be just a small white patch, lighter than the tanned page edges beside it, about 1" long by 1/4" wide. The effect on the interior looks like a small, faint, semi-circular shadow (with a slightly darker rim) at the far right edges of the pages, on the front and back sides of about 60 leaves: 1/2 cm. deep (at the deepest) by 2 cm. long, with many pages marked to a much lesser degree. The rest of the book is so nice, it is difficult for me to condemn it harshly just because of this problem. As dampstains go, this one is minor - I have seen much, much worse (and would grade those books much lower: "good" , "fair", "poor", "hopeless", etc. Two dustjackets come with this book: one very good plus, and a fine one. The very good plus jacket has the supposed "first issue" code (per Bill McBride's book Points Of Issue): "394-46792-2", the fine one has "394-46744-2". The owner of this book can choose which one to use. I will leave it up to more experienced sellers than I am to decipher those numbers and their significance. Photos on request!.
