Richard Laymon. Body Rides. Headline 1996. First Edition. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. Fine / Fine. This a first printing of the UK first edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain 1996 by Headline Book Publishing" statement with full 10 to 1 print line. Very sharp clean black boards with silver blocking to spine - rear lower corner tip slightly bumped and the tail of the spine ever so slightly flattened. A tight square standing copy which appears unread (makes all those lovely cracking noises when you open it a touch). Text block is clean and the common age discolouration is minimal. The equally sharp DJ is pretty flawless marred only by a couple of very light pressure creases to the back panel - £16.99 price intact on front flap. Inscribed "For Bill - Ride, boldly ride! Best" and signed by Richard Laymon on the title page. An extremely elusive first edition and finding a signed copy could take years off your life! I have been collecting Laymon for well over 30 years and in all that time have seen less than a dozen decent copies for sale, three signed and I had two of them. This copy taken from my personal collection.
