Men Of Blood UK First Edition


Shaun Hutson. Men Of Blood. Robert Hale 1984. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine / Fine. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain 1984" statement with no subsequent printings mentioned. Very sharp clean black boards with silver blocking to spine. Tightly bound and appears unread. Text block clean, ever so slightly age discoloured with a touch of foxing to the top edge. DJ shows strong saturated colours with no fading, some rubbing to back panel and very fine pressure marks to front (I am being really picky as you have to look pretty close). The edges of the flaps which protrude above the text block are a bit dusty - I reckon this one has been sat on a shelf untouched for the best part of thirty years. £7.75 price intact on front flap. Hutson wrote a few of these war books and the print runs were small, most going to the library system, hence they are extraordinarily scarce and finding one in this kind of condition is nigh on impossible. A real collectors copy.
