The Ruby In The Smoke (Signed By The Author) - Pullman, Philip - 1985. 
The First UK Printing published by The Oxford University Press in 1985. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Sharp corners and the silver lettering remains bright. Tiny superficial mark to front upper cover. Light spotting to the end papers. The usual toning to the text block and page edges due to the cheap paper stock used at the time. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is complete and is in near FINE condition. Mild edge-wear to lower front corner. Very slight fading of the red colouring to the spine. Spotting to the verso which has very lightly come through in a few places. Tiny nick to the front spine fold. The wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The BOOK has been Signed by Philip Pullman to the title page. A ticket for the signing event accompanies this book as provenance. The first title in the hugely successful 'Sally Lockhart Quartet' series. A scarce title to have survived as most ended up going into libraries. Collectible. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.
