The Midnight Tour Signed UK First Edition


Sold out

Richard Laymon. The Midnight Tour. Headline 1998. First Edition. Hard Cover. Signed by Author & Illustrator. Very Fine / Very Fine. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain in 1998 by Headline Book Publishing" statement with full 10 to 1 number line. A lovely tight square standing copy, sharp clean black boards with silver foil blocking to spine, clean text block showing just a little of the common age discolouration. The tail of the spine is ever so ever so slightly flattened simply due to the size of the book but I am being really picky pointing it out! The immaculate DJ has £16.99 price intact on front flap. Very scarce in such nice unread condition. This copy has been inscribed "May the beast be with you" and signed by Richard Laymon on the title page. As if that wasn't enough the front flap has been signed by cover artist Steve Crisp (in my presence at the World Horror Convention, Brighton, March 2010). A truly wonderful example for the Laymon aficionado ! I have been a serious Laymon collector for over thirty years and this copy is taken from my personal collection. REF C569
