Bloch, Robert
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1959. First Edition. Signed review copy of the first edition, with publisher's review slip laid in. Signed by the author on the page bearing the publisher's logo, dubbed "The Sower," which depicts a man sewing seeds in mid-stride with one hand swung back. Bloch has augmented The Sower in a fantastically fitting manner--signing his name in a speech bubble and drawing a knife in the man's rear hand, complete with several drops of blood dripping from its blade. Bound in publisher's black paper-covered boards over white spine cloth stamped in red. Toning to pages and spine cloth and a bump at the crown, else Fine. In a Fine unclipped dust jacket with light foxing, trivial wear and two faint scratches to the spine panel. The book served as the basis for the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film, featuring perhaps one of the best-known scenes in all of cinema, where Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) is stabbed to death in the shower. Fine / Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Vendeur: Burnside Rare Books [United States]
