The Author's Scarce First Book
Pullman, Philip ~ The Haunted Storm : Signed By The Author
New English Library : 1972
The First UK printing published by The New English Library in 1972. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. The usually encountered toning to the page edges and text-block due to the quality of the paper stock used. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Very light pushing at the lower spine otherwise a very sharp copy. The original WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ condition. A little light edge wear with a small chip at the upper spine.Upper edges are a little rubbed and nicked in places. The spine is only lightly faded and less so than usually encountered. The wrapper design looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Signed (without dedication) to the title page by the Author. The 'Carnegie Prize Winner' author's very scarce first published book. There was a paperback version issued simultaneously but the hardback edition was published in very small numbers and most ended up in libraries. A very scarce title to find in such collectible condition.
