A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1938. A very good book with four small stains to the top edge of the front free endpaper/pastedown. Wear and rubbing to the spine. In the dust wrapper which has a chip to the head of the spine, browning to the spine and small chips to the edges. Becoming scarce to find in the original dust wrapper.

A bestseller which has never gone out of print, Rebecca sold 2.8 million copies between its publication in 1938 and 1965. It has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen, including a 1939 play by du Maurier herself, the film Rebecca (1940), directed by Alfred Hitchcock, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and the 2020 remake directed by Ben Wheatley for Netflix.
