Jamaica Inn.London: Victor Gollancz, 1936 Stock Code: 85173
First edition, first impression. Jamaica Inn was Du Maurier's first book, and her strengths in "narrative drive and the evocation of atmosphere" made it an instant best-seller and later a successful film (ODNB).

The occasional minor blemish, an excellent copy in a fine binding.
