Mega rare first edition of this true supernatural classic.
Ex-library copy, refurbished to the best of its ability.
Dust jacket has been beautifully preserved. Some light shelf wear and two extremely minor and small water stains on back. Otherwise, excellent. Unclipped panels, with a cover price of $7.95 in tact.
Book itself is in fair to good condition. Cover looks fabulous; clean boards and cloth, minimal wear. Strong binding with the slightest bit of tilting to spine. Library stamp on title page. Top of text block has a second library stamp as well as a minor damp stain.
Inside, pages are strong; thick paper with some very minor toning. Some soiling to text block. Flyleafs are fixed to endpapers.
