Phil Rickman. The Secrets of Pain. Corvus 2011. First Edition. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. Fine / Fine. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain in 2011 by Corvus" statement with a full print line (13579108642). Sharp clean black boards with silver lettering to spine. A very nice square standing copy appearing to have been very carefully read. Text block clean and bright, the foredge showing just a touch of very light discolouration in places (I’m being really picky here!). The equally sharp DJ has £18.99 price intact. Simultaneously published in paperback in much greater numbers, this hardback edition of the eleventh book in the extraordinarily popular Merrily Watkins series is likely to become very scarce. Even more collectible as this copy was purchased at the books pre-publication launch in Hereford and signed and dated (August 28 2011) in my presence. Lovely copy for the Rickman collector / fan.
