Elizabeth Bowen - The Cat Jumps - 1934 UK 1st Proof - Supernatural short stories
1934. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the buff coloured wraps lettered in black, the spine is browned and creased with several small splits and tears to the paper, there are also light grubby marks and the corners are slightly creased and bumped. The text block is slightly age toned and dusty with a few scattered marks & spots of foxing, the corners are lightly creased. Elizabeth Bowen - The Cat Jumps - 1934 U.K. first edition published by Victor Gollancz Ltd First edition, proof copy, with "ADVANCE UNCORRECTED" added by hand above. I am not sure whether there are any textual differences between the published first edition and this proof, as copies to base such a comparison on are decidedly scarce! The book is reasonably firmly bound in the buff coloured wraps lettered in black, the spine is browned and creased with several small splits and tears to the paper, there are also light grubby marks and the corners are slightly creased and bumped. The text block is slightly age toned and dusty with a few scattered marks & spots of foxing, the corners are lightly creased. An excellent collection of short stories, including several psychological chillers and two of Bowen's best ghost stories, 'The Cat Jumps' and 'The Apple Tree'. [Attributes: First Edition]
