King Blood UK 1st Signed


Simon Clark. King Blood. Hodder & Stoughton 1997. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine / Fine. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain in 1997 by Hodder and Stoughton" statement with full 10 to 1 number line. All of Clark's early novels have become highly sought after and this one is no exception. A nice square standing copy, head of spine ever so slightly softened, small bump to the upper right corner tip of the front board. Text block nice and clean with only a little (often severe) of the common age discolouration to the cheap paper stock. The sharp DJ shows just a touch of creasing at the head of the spine and upper right corner of front panel. Front flap is not price clipped but nor is it priced suggesting it was originally intended for export however the bar code of the rear panel has the 16.99 indicator. Flat signed in my presence by Simon Clark on the title page (at World Horror Convention, Brighton, March 2010). Scarce in such collectible condition, especially signed. REFC2
