The Horror of Toynham Hall

London: The Modern Publishing Company. 1st Edition. Cloth. Near Fine / Very Good/Near Fine. Item #013479

12mo., 254pp. Beautiful First Edition, undated but c. early 1930's, Bound in red cloth with titles in black on spine. Publisher's slogan in black on rear board. Advertisements on paste-downs. Square, tight and clean throughout with just a touch of wear at the spine ends and bottom edge but quite minor. Spine cloth pushed in a bit at the top but not creased or torn. Little if any toning and no foxing. Remarkably well-preserved for such delicately, and cheaply, made books that are notorious for the poor condition they are typically found in. Very attractive original unclipped, though unpriced, dustjacket, (2/- on spine panel), has mild soiling to rear panel and spine and a lightly toned spine. A couple of tiny nicks to the spine ends and fold tips. A couple of tiny pieces of tape on the verso. but invisible from the front. Still fresh and bright with no creases or tears and impossible to find in any condition. A sharp collectable copy and quite scarce with no other copies currently in the marketplace. (Hubin p.262).

Price: $350.00
