Guy N Smith. Snakes. New English Library 1986. First Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Signed by Author. Fine. This a first printing of the UK first edition (paperback original) as indicated by the “A New English Library Original Publication 1986” and “First published in Great Britain 1986 by New English Library” statements with no subsequent printings mentioned. Flat uncreased spine, a little rubbed at the tail. Front cover shows only the most minimal edge wear, back cover shows a small bump mid way down the spine hinge. Internally previous owners pencilled price to the half title (can be erased but I don’t like to) otherwise very clean if a touch age discoloured as you would expect. Still feels quite tightly bound and possibly unread. A rare first printing in lovely condition made more special as it was flat signed by the author in my presence. A very collectable copy.
