The Great And Secret Show Signed UK Proof


Clive Barker. The Great And Secret Show. Collins 1989. First Edition. Original Wraps. Galley / Proof. Signed by Author. Very Good / Very Good. This an uncorrected proof of the UK First Edition. A nice square copy with flat uncreased spine. Internally clean and bright though some light soiling to the edges of the text block. Small bump to the lower left corner. Pictorial front cover shows some edge wear and a faint vertical crease. Upper and lower right corner tips slightly curled / rubbed. Back cover shows some very light edge wear with a couple of fine diagonal creases. Flat signed by Clive on the title page. An uncommon proof, especially signed, and made even more special as it comes with a proof DJ (I have never seen another one!). The DJ is untrimmed and has been folded to fit the book so there are extra fold creases where you wouldn't expect them. Upper edge shows some rubbing / creasing. Great copy for the hardcore Clive Barker collector!
