The Author's Scarce First Novel
Pullman , Philip ~ The Haunted Storm : Signed By The Author
New English Library : 1971
The First UK printing published by The New English Library in 1971. The author's first and extremely scarce book. Signed directly to the title page without dedication by the author. A ticket for the signing event accompanies this title as provenance. The page edges are toned with some additional mild spotting and some old tape remnant marks to the boards (see images). No other markings and otherwise a Very Good++ copy in a Very Good+ WRAPPER which has some light wear along the edges and to the corner tips. Very minimal fading to the spine. The wrapper is complete and is not price-clipped. New English Library books were cheaply produced and this is a rare survivor. A very scarce item to find with such attributes. Apart from old tape markings, there are no signs to suggest an ex library copy.
CONDITION: Very Good++
JACKET: Very Good+
