pp 446 The 'Special Presentation Edition' of Daphne Du Maurier's classic of romantic fiction which boasts one of the most memorable first lines in the English novel: 'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.' This is one of 200 copies of this presentation edition which was issued in the same black cloth binding as the first edition with 'Rebecca' printed in gilt in the corner of the upper board and its designation as the 'Special Presentation Edition' emblazoned across the title page. (Victor Gollancz had this edition printed shortly after first publication for presentation to the grandees of English publishing as a way of promoting what was already a runaway bestseller.) This copy is in good condition only, the cloth is rubbed and faded, there is an unsightly stain to the inner hinge between the front paste-down and the first endpaper with spotting throughout but not on the edges of the text block. An uncommon book in this edition.
