Highsmith, Patricia ~ Strangers On A Train
The Cresset Press : 1950
The First UK printing published by The Cresset press in 1950. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. A couple of very light marks to the boards. Gilt titling remains bright. Spotting to the text-block and the prelims due to the cheap paper stock used. A penned gift inscription to the upper front blank end paper. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Fading to the spine with a little spotting in places. Some rubbing to the folds and spine ends with a little loss at the upper spine end. Small closed tear to the lower front spine fold. A very small light circular stain to the upper front panel. The J. Yunge-Bateman wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. A landmark book in crime fiction, famously filmed by Hitchcock with Chandler involved in the screenplay. A scarce title.
CONDITION: Very Good++
JACKET: Very Good+
