The Apple Tree: A short novel and several long stories


FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Pushing to spine ends, tanned edges, a few creased pages and a scatter of marks, “Aduqi” in blue pen to rear endpaper. Else, clean and tight. In Val Biro’s lovely arboreal dust jacket: spine sunned, wear and chipping to extremities, especially head of spine, amateur tape reinforcement to reverse, a few short closed tears and nicks. Still, a very good copy of Du Maurier’s short story collection.
