First UK edition, first printing. Publisher's original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with some bumping at the spine tips and shelf wear to the bottom edge of the boards. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly creased original dustwrapper which remains bright and entirely without fading. There is a small scuff to the middle of the lower spine fold and some mild dampstaining to the bottom edge, visible only from the underside when the jacket is removed from the book. Not price-clipped £3.95 net to the front flap.
The author's debut novel. The basis for the 1994 gothic horror film directed by Neil Jordan, starring Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst.
