The Dark by James Herbert 


5th Printing from 1986.   Hardcover with dust jacket.

Dust jacket is very good; underside does have foxing; but otherwise, clean vibrant and in tact; looking sharp in a brand new archival quality mylar jacket.

Book has nice tight clean boards.  Name written on flyleaf.  Heavy tanning and visible foxing to text block and some pages [see last photo]  

A blackness leaves its lair, and begins slowly to spread

It came like a malignant shadow with seductive promises of power. Somewhere in the night, a small girl smiled as her mother burned, asylum inmates slaughtered their attendants, and in slimy tunnels once-human creatures gathered. Madness raged as the lights began to fade, and humanity was attacked by an ancient, unstoppable evil.
