Ancient Images Signed US 1st Edition


Ramsey Campbell. Ancient Images. Scribners 1989. First Edition. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. Very Good / Very Good. This a first printing of the US First Edition as indicated by the full 10 to 1 number line. Pale blue boards quarter bound in black cloth with gold lettering to the spine, black endpapers. Boards show some rubbing to all edges, upper tips bumped front and rear, lightly soiled, head and tail of spine a touch softened. Text block still reasonably tight though there is some soiling to the edges and the upper right corner is creased throughout, most noticeably between pages 90 and 200. DJ shows some creasing associated with the bumps, head of spine a little rubbed with a small chip, tail of spine a touch creased, some soiling and a laminate crease to the lower right of the front panel. $18.95 price is intact on the front flap. Not a minter by any means but surprisingly quite hard to get hold of and this copy was signed by Ramsey in my presence at Horrorlitic in Bournemouth 2011.
