Notes Stated First American Edition. Author's first novel, and SIGNED by the author on a loosely laid in card. The book is bound in red cloth, and is straight, clean, tight and has no previous owner writing in it. It has a trace of bumping to the upper edge of the front board and a few tiny, pin-point sized flecks to upper page edges. The price intact dustjacket is bright, clean and unfaded. It has very tiny edge nicks at the flap fold ends and lower spine end, a short, closed edge tear upper back edge, and a very small amount of surface rubbing to the spine ends. Collecting is taken to an extreme when a man goes from butterfly collecting to kidnapping a girl he admires. A really spooky story, and a really spooky movie. ; Signed by Author
