London: Ward Lock, 1933. First UK Edition, preceding all others.
Basis for the quintessential 1946 film noir "The Spiral Staircase," directed by Robert Siodmak, starring Dorothy McGuire and George Brent. Rare.
Very Good plus in brown cloth-covered boards, lacking the rare dust jacket. Contemporary gift inscription to the front endpaper, with moderate foxing to the page edges through about page 27, and light offsetting to the endpapers.
