THE SUNDIAL by  Shirley Jackson - First Edition - (1958) - from Quill & Brush and


by Jackson, Shirley

Condition: See description

New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, (1958). First edition. Twelve occupants of a mansion await the end of the world believing they will be the only survivors. Small paint stain on bottom edge of spine and few tiny holes in rear spine-gutter area otherwise very good or better in price-clipped dust jacket with light edge rubbing and two small tears repaired with tape on verso. Still, a bright copy.

Before there was Hill House, there was the Halloran mansion of Jackson’s stunningly creepy fourth novel, The Sundial . When the Halloran clan gathers at the family home for a funeral, no one is surprised when the somewhat peculiar Aunt Fanny wanders off into the secret garden. But then she returns to report an astonishing vision of an apocalypse from which only the Hallorans and their hangers-on will be spared, and the family finds itself engulfed in growing madness, fear, and violence as they prepare for a terrible new world.
