The Boiling Pool UK First HB


Gary Brandner. The Boiling Pool. Severn House 1995. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine / Near Fine. This a first printing of the UK/US first edition as indicated by the “This first world edition published in Great Britain 1995 by Severn House Publishers Ltd” statement with no subsequent printings mentioned. Copyright information for the USA also present as required as the same edition was used in both markets. Clean black boards with gold blocking to spine, white endpapers. Head and tail of spine a touch flattened. The lower corner tips of both front and rear boards a touch bumped. A tight square standing unread copy. Internally clean and bright but for an erasure mark on the FEP (not by me - previous sellers price I think). The DJ is pretty decent. Front and rear covers are clean and show just a little surface rubbing and light edge creasing. Tips of the flap folds just a little rubbed. Both $22 and £15.99 prices intact on the front flap. A very scarce edition as nearly all of these ended up in the library system – unread copies are very few and far between. Very collectable.
