Darker Signed UK 1st Edition


Simon Clark. Darker. Hodder & Stoughton 1996. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good+ / Near Fine. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain in 1996 by Hodder and Stoughton" statement with full number line. Book is clean, square and appears unread (if read then only once and very carefully). Would be fine but for some bumps to the rear board (one at upper left tip, one on top edge near spine and one to the lower edge at the spine hinge) and some creasing to the rear board which looks like it occurred during the manufacture. DJ is in lovely condition but for some light creasing at the spine ends and the corners of the rear panel. Unclipped but also unpriced suggesting this was originally intended for export. Flat signed in my presence by Simon Clark at the World Horror Convention, Brighton, March 2010. Very scarce and Clark's third novel is highly sought after, especially signed. REF851
