A Handful of Darkness.
First edition, first impression of the author’s first hardback book; first issue in the blue binding and with the dust jacket priced at 10s 6d. With a review slip from the publisher’s laid in, giving the price at 10/6 and the publication date at 15 August 1955, also including a sticker giving notice of Rich & Cowan’s new address at Stratford Place, W1. This unusual price-clipping of a review copy may be due to the publisher’s pre-publication uncertainty about the pricing.
