About This Item

London: Hodder and Stoughton. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1961. First Edition. Hardcover. (price-clipped) [nice tight clean copy, just the teensiest bumping to the lower front corner; the jacket is virtually flawless, downgraded from Fine only because of the price-clipping and a touch of soiling to the rear panel]. "John Soames is thirty years old and, physiologically speaking, alive. But by some trick of fate he has never become conscious. He is awoken and brought to full consciousness by a surgeon's knife, a newborn baby with the body of a healthy young man." Basis for the 1970 British-American film of the same name, starring Terence Stamp and Robert Vaughn; a critical and box-office disappointment on its original release, the film has gained a bit of a retrospective cult reputation, with one online critic calling it "a dark gem, and a worthy pretender to the British horror hall of fame." Uncommon in the first edition, all the more so in such outstanding condition. .
