Daphne Du Maurier
Victor Gollancz, London, 1938. Comes with a bonus item, which is a copy of a large newspaper article [size A3] about Daphne Du Maurier and how she came to write Rebecca at her publisher's request. It's very interesting. It delves into Daphne Du Mauriers private life, [even mentions lesbianism]. This is Daphne Du Mauriers most famous book. "A study in Jealousy", she is reported to have said. 1938 to bottom of full title page. Has the amazing opening line.'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.' Description of book: A beautiful facsimile dustjacket accompanies this book. Created from a first impression [Gollancz], it retains a beautifully vibrant colour and has the price of 8/6 net to spine. Now housed in a plastic sleeve for future protection. - Black cloth, faded. Gilt lettering to the front and bottom of the spine legible [has been re-written, in gold leaf], frayed, with small chips to the spine cloth. Creased and fraying also along the spine margins. Corners are scuffed and bumped. Overall; a fairly nice condition. All housed beneath the accompanying dustjacket. Starts with the famous opening line: 'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again.' Story has 446 pages. Front blank endpage is adhered to the inner board and this was often done to strengthen the page block. Browning and foxing throughout. - END - Thank you for your interest and I do hope you can buy this beautiful book. - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
