First edition, first printing. Considered one of the best literary ghost stories of the 20th century. ” Jackson’s novel relies on terror rather than horror to elicit emotion by the reader, utilising complex relationships between the mysterious events in the house and the characters’ psyches”. Finalist for the National Book award and basis for two films, both under the title, “The Haunting”.

Octavo. Original yellow and blue cloth boards, titles to spine black. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with just a hint of fading to colours at spine, trivial wear to ends of spine. A very attractive copy.
