DEAD CERT

FRANCIS DICK

London: Michael Joseph, 1962. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. First UK Edition. A VG+ copy in an absolutely fine D/W. Inscribed by the Author on the FFEP: "January 1962/ To Nancy & Hennie/ With very best wishes/ from/ Dick & Mary". An outstanding inscribed copy (in the year of publication) of Dick Francis’ first novel and exceedingly uncommon in this sort of collector’s condition. Quite simply, the best copy of this book that I have seen and really nice to see it with a contemporary inscription by the Author. Nancy and Hennie were obviously well known to Dick Francis and his wife as several other first editions have appeared on the market inscribed to them.
