  • Mary Anne – Daphne du Maurier – First Australian edition 1954

    Mary Anne – Daphne du Maurier – First Australian edition 1954

    Published by Angus and Robertson, Sydney 1954. Octavo, 389 pages. A little ageing and some minor dust jacket edge chips. Still a very good copy.

    First Australian edition of the novel about her great-great-grandmother Mary Anne Clarke (1776-1852) who led a most interesting life.

    She was the mistress of Prince Frederick, Duke of York Commander in Chief … seemingly she liked her men to be well heeled.

    Extravagant Mary Anne was in the family

  • Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier – 1947 Edition

    Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier – 1947 Edition

    Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca one of the greatest romantic novels of all time … a young bride is thrust into the house of the dead former wife.

    First published in 1938 by Gollancz. This is the 1947 edition 31st impression of a book that has to run to hundreds editions and impressions.

    Octavo, 302 pages, in the iconic Gollancz yellow jacket. Previous owners name and address on the front free end paper, a little age to the jacket, otherwise a very good copy and a “relatively” early edition.

    “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again”

  • Jamaica Inn – Daphne Du Maurier – 1939 Edition

    Jamaica Inn – Daphne Du Maurier – 1939 Edition

    Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn vies with Rebecca as her best work… this “First Cheap Edition” has become iconic.

    Jamaica Inn was first published in 1936 … this is effectively the eight edition (many more to come) of April 1939.

    Octavo, 351 pages, with the publisher Gollancz’s iconic yellow jacket, with the bold Spectator review ‘I do not believe that Stevenson would have been ashamed to have written it”. Jacket chipped and page edges foxed otherwise a perfectly acceptable early Jamaica Inn.

    If you are in that beautiful part of England make sure you visit Jamaica Inn and read the book. Daphne gives us a useful introductory note … “Jamaica Inn stands to-day, hospitable and kindly, a temperance house on the twenty-mile road between Bodmin and Launceston” … you can get a nice drop there now and a heavy lunch!

    “It was a cold grey day in November …”

  • The Parasites – Daphne du Maurier

    The Parasites – Daphne du Maurier

    Published by Victor Gollancz, London 1983 … the first printing of the second issue in the more modern Gollancz jacket. Octavo, 350 pages in very good condition.

    Daphne du Maurier’s somewhat exotic scandalous story of the Delaney family and they were parasitic. Draws on her own life.

    Vies with Rebecca as her best
