I'm the King of the Castle by Susan Hill 1st / 1st 1970
London: Hamish Hamilton, (1970)
First edition and first print of this rare early title from the author. The book and wrapper are both in very good ++ condition. The wrapper has a closed tear to the top right of the front panel otherwise it is in a very clean and presentable condition. It is also not price clipped. The book is a touch rubbed to the top of the spine. Otherwise no previous owners marks or ink inside. Overall very good ++
From the author of ‘the woman in black’ comes a tale of two waring boys in a country mansion that had fallen into decay. It won the author the Somerset Maugham prize in 1971. Rare.
