Phil Rickman. December. Macmillan 1994. First Edition. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. Very Good / Very Good. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published 1994 by Macmillan London" statement with full print line. Black boards with gold lettering to spine, black endpapers. Head and tail of spine somewhat crunched / rubbed. Back board shows some soiling with a bump to the centre of the lower edge. Corner tips of front and rear boards rubbed to various degrees. However a nice tight copy (maybe partially read) which stands with only a very minor lean. Text block appears internally clean with some soiling to the edges. DJ quite clean and bright. Some obvious creasing to the spine ends and light creasing to all edges. Upper tip of the rear flap fold shows some rubbing. Lower tip of front flap fold creased. Some faint pressure marks to front and rear panels. Front flap has not been clipped though is not priced suggesting it was originally intended for export. Quite a scarce title these days. This copy more collectible than most as it was flat signed by Phil Rickman in my presence.
