Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1942. First American Edition, and first edition under this title. Preceded by the UK edition, titled "Uneasy Freehold" published by Peter Davies in 1941. Basis for the 1944 film classic, directed by Lewis Allen and starring Ray Milland, recently named by Martin Scorsese as his favorite horror film of all time.
Near Fine in a Very Good dust jacket. Cloth and gilt titling are bright and crisp, with offsetting to the endpapers to note. Jacket is bright and exceptional for this title, with some light edgewear and shallow creasing, along with a few tiny repairs at the verso. Overall, an exceptional copy of a book whose fragile jacket is usually found in poor condition.
