The Sleepless UK 1st Edition


Graham Masterton. The Sleepless. Heinemann 1993. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good / Good. This a first printing of the UK First Edition as indicated by the "First published in Great Britain 1993 by William Heinemann Ltd" statement with no subsequent printings mentioned. Clean black boards with silver foil lettering to spine. Head and tail of spine a little flattened with some light rubbing, all four corner tips slightly bumped/blunted. Book stands square. Text block appears clean if a tad age discoloured with some light soiling to the edges. DJ is rubbed and creased along all edges, rubbing to tips of flap folds, small closed tear to the top edge of the rear panel and a rub near the centre of the rear flap fold. £15.99 price is intact on front flap. One of those Masterton titles which has proven to be extraordinarily elusive to collectors. You will see a few hardbacks around but be careful as most are BCA / book club editions or ex-library copies. This copy is the real deal! REFC1076
