  • Book Condition & Notes

    Signed by Dorothy Hughes to first flyleaf - presumably a review copy, judging from the review slip and calendar of events tucked inside the front cover. A very good first edition, with some bumping to corners and slight wear to spine. Slight browning to page block. In a good unclipped dust jacket with chippng to spine and corners, and several small tears along edges.
