DEAD CERT [ Autographed First Edition ]

Francis, Dick

London: Michael Joseph. Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket. 1962. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Autograph; AUTOGRAPHED on titlepage "Hi, XXXX, Dick Francis." The true First Edition (published in London) of Dick Francis' first thriller in what became a landmark series of horse racing mysteries. Burgundy cloth binding in pictorial dust wrapper. Binding has a very slightly lean, corners sharp, light offsetting to free endpapers where exposed beyond dustwrapper flaps (as usual), a very few faint spots of foxing to preliminary leaves, (the half title leaf and the last blank leaf and the rear free-endpaper). Dustwrapper design by Trevor Denning; price-clipped, some very modest edgewear with minor loss at spine ends and lower corners, mild toning to white background and some faint superficial staining to rear panel (see images). Entirely without any restoration or sophistication - a satisfying copy of one of the major high spots of twentieth century modern first editions, inscribed and signed at the center of the title page. Quite scarce, especially autographed.; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

London: Michael Joseph. This is a Good Only Copy of this Book in Publisher's maroon cloth with gilt lettered title to the spine,in a Fine Dust-Jacket that is unrestored and there are NO chips or tears to the extremities.There is just a touch of tone fading to the head and tail of spine.Price clipped with dust-jacket design by Trevor Denning.We believe that the d/j is a 3rd Issue one with the title of 'Nerve' advertised on the rear panel.The book has some faults in that there are tape remnant markings to the front and rear pastedowns and the front and rear endpapers also,with one former owner's inscription to the front pastedown.There is some heavy age toning to the fore-edge of the book and it's lightly spotted.Internally the text block is decent with some sporadic foxing spots noted to pages 141-147 and there is staining to the page margins noted on pages numbers 27-30.So there we are collectable First Edition Book in a later 3rd Impression Dust-Jacket we think.8vo 206pp .

Dead Cert (Audio Book)

Dick Francis

Bolinda audio, 2014. Unabridged. CD MP3 format. New. Horse racing can be a dangerous sport, but it becomes a deadly one when a champion is killed. As he rode through the thick English fog, jockey Alan York was looking at an all-too-familiar sight: the back of champion rider Bill Davidson astride the great racehorse Admiral. But this was one race York was destined to win. Before Admiral jumped the last fence, Bill Davidson would be dead. Alan knew racing was a dangerous sport: horses fell, jockeys got hurt. But he also knew this had been no accident. It was the kind of knowledge that could get a man killed. This Is An Audio Book. Duration: 485. Reader: Britton, Tony.
