Rebecca (With The Winding Stair) - SIGNED
Victor Gollancz Limited FIRST EDITION 1938 - Very nice First Edition Third impression before publication copy of this enduring tale now preserved in a correct facsimile dust jacket housed in a mylar sleeve. Covers with wear to extremities, fading to gilt lettering and spine and slight spine lean. Ink ownership inscription to ffep. Internally with a few very small marks mainly to endpapers but a surprisingly clean crisp copy mercifully free of the foxing which so often plagues this edition. DOUBLE SIGNED BY DU MAURIER by way of a first edition (1976) copy of her biography of Francis Bacon "The Winding Stair" which she has dedicated to a Mrs King "in gratitude for her help and for Verulam House. Sincerely Daphne Du Maurier". Also included is an interesting TLS in its original envelope dated October 1975 from Du Maurier to Mrs King concerning the book SIGNED IN HER MARRIED NAME OF BROWNING on her headed stationery from Kilmarth in Cornwall which was the home where Du Maurier spent the last years of her life and was described in her book "The House on the Strand". ALSO included is a small mounted photograph of an Elizabethan man under which Du Maurier has written "Anthony - Perhaps?" (a ref. to Bacon's brother). A newspaper cutting from the Daily Telegraph dated 29th Nov. 1976 reviewing the book is loosely laid in. "The Winding Stair" has a few creases to extremities of its original dust wrapper otherwise in great condition. The letter and other inserts are in excellent condition. A superb lot for the collecter. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
