Strangers on a Train
London: Cresset, 1950. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. (London: The Cresset Press 1950). First UK Edition. Publisher's blue boards with gilt lettering to the front board and spine. Just the merest hint of foxing to the page block edges otherwise a lovely, bright and clean VG+ copy. The D/W designed by J Yunge-Bateman is priced 10/6 to the inside flap as called for. The D/W has the wide flaps required by the first edition. The D/W is has a clean back panel with a small patch of insignificant surface loss to the left hand edge and the red spine is now a lighter hue of red (but not as far as burnt orange seen on other copies which have suffered much more). The D/W has had NO RESTORATION and is NOT PRICE-CLIPPED and is a totally honest example in perfectly shelvable condition. Formerly owned by the late, great bookseller George Locke (Ferret Fantasy). Famously filmed in 1951 and directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Farley Granger as Guy Haines, Robert Walker as Bruno Anthony, Ruth Roman as Anne Morton, Kasey Rogers as Miriam Haines, First book.
