The House of Dr. Edwardes
A.L. Burt Company (c.1928), New York - [solid copy, light wear to bottom edge, bumped at base of spine, spine slightly turned; jacket has tiny tears and minor paper loss at most top corners, still quite presentable]. Suspense novel set in a "private asylum for the mentally deficient." Later served as the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 thriller SPELLBOUND, with Gregory Peck as the man whose innermost torment is expressed in a memorable Salvador Dali-designed dream sequence. Very difficult to find in any sort of a dust jacket; I believe this uses the same art as the first American (Little, Brown) edition, but I've never seen one of those because it's super-damn-rare, as opposed to this one, which is only kinda-sorta rare. (Even the primary supplier of facsimile dust jackets seems to have been unable to track down an example of the first, since the one he offers is the Burt edition.) NOISBN [Attributes: Hard Cover]
