About This Item

New York: The Viking Press, 1962. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition, first printing. Bound in publisher's original crimson and cream-colored cloth with crimson spine lettering and topstain. Near Fine. Evidence of a narrow label removed from the front pastedown, former owner name and date to verso of half-title page and inked notation to title page reading "12-12-64 / Excellent!! / M.D.F." In a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light dust soiling, light wear, light creasing and a small nick to the front spine fold about an inch and a half down. A classic horror novel that inspired the recent film directed by Stacie Passon.

Synopsis

Merricat Blackwood lives on the family estate with her sister Constance and her uncle Julian. Not long ago there were seven Blackwoods—until a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one terrible night. Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the curiousity and hostility of the villagers. Their days pass in happy isolation until cousin Charles appears. Only Merricat can see the danger, and she must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp.
