A New Lease of Death Signed by Ruth Rendell 1st / 1st 1967
FIRST UK EDITION published by John Long in 1967. The wrapper has rubbing and wear to the spine and corner ends. There are a couple of tiny tears along the edges. It is not price clipped displaying 21s net. The wrapper is complete with no chips and retains its colour on the spine and panels. The book has some spotting marks to the top of the inside board. Otherwise there are no other marks and no previous owners ink. Overall it is a very good or better copy. This one is rare as Ruth Rendell has signed her name without dedication to the title page.
The second Inspector Wexford mystery with the superb Willam Randell dust wrapper. This copy rare in this condition and signed.
