Scored this one at work today! Such a pretty signature! Love the In Death series however I‘m not really a fan of her other writings, but this is a keeper anyway! And it‘s a first edition too boot!

The Fox and the Hound | Daniel Mannix

Found this really cheap a few years back. Upon further inspection found that it was a first edition 1967, before the movie was even thought of. Great shape hardback. This is our Lucy, probably a a dachshund-pit mix. #dogsoflitsy #firstedition

REBECCA | Daphne du Maurier's

#riotgrams day 11, #nakedhardcovers.
I didn‘t undress anything for this one, just chose the books I have that are already naked! And they happen to be some of my favorites! The copy of “Rebecca” is a first edition 😊 #oldbooks #janeeyre #firstedition #vintagebooks @bookriot

Slajaunie Love Rebecca! You have another of my favorites as well, Mary, Queen of Scots. 2y
RadicalReader @WhiskeyMistress looking forward to reading Rebecca for myself heard awesome reviews for it and love me some scary novels 2y
WhiskeyMistress @RadicalReader it is a singular delight, marketed as a romance but a true thriller that deserves every bit of praise it gets. Hasn‘t been out of print since 1938. 2y
WhiskeyMistress @Slajaunie I LOVE “Mary, Queen of Scots”, as well as Antonia Fraser‘s “Marie Antoinette”, although I don‘t own a copy of that one! 2y
Slajaunie @WhiskeyMistress I will have to add that one to my tbr list. 2y
