Panic Party
Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1934. First UK Edition. Publisher's light blue cloth, black lettering to the front board and spine. An excellent near fine copy (without the discolouration and mottling so often seen with H & S blue cloth first editions of this period) with clean contents and no previous owner's inscriptions. In the VERY RARE D/W priced 7/6 net to the spine (as called for). The D/W is a bright and attractive example with a touch of fraying at the spine tips but with no loss. The rear flap is blind-stamped: The Circulating Library Harrods Ltd SW1. The rear flap is creased with minor chipping and with a couple of closed tears. One of the rarest Berkeley first editions from the 1930's in our experience. The dark pink/red D/W "shows Guy Pidgeon's body falling backwards over a cliff silhouetted against the moon and framed by trees" (Cooper and Pike). Rare. Photographs/scans available upon request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: James M Pickard, ABA, ILAB, PBFA. [LEICESTER, United Kingdom]
