HILL, Susan

The Woman In Black

London: Hamish Hamilton, 1983

8vo, pp. 160. Original green boards, lettered in gilt to spine. Illustrated dustwrapper.

First edition of what has now become better known in its second incarnation. The stage adaptation of The Woman In Black is a West End phenomenon, and has been running in London since 1989. Like the book, it is genuinely creepy.

Scarce, and getting scarcer.
