First UK edition, first impression, of the child prodigy author’s first novel, written when she was twelve years old. The House Without Windows tells the story of a nine-year-old runaway. It was received with widespread critical acclaim. Follett disappeared in her twenties after a quarrel with her husband.

Octavo. Original black cloth-backed blue and black patterned boards, titles to spine gilt, top edge black, others uncut. With the dust jacket. Contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper and half-title. Extremities lightly rubbed, top edges of boards a little faded, free endpapers partially tanned, contents faintly toned, a couple of leaves roughly opened, one middle hinge cracked but still holding firm. An excellent copy in a rubbed and lightly chipped jacket with a tanned spine panel.
