Post 8vo (21cm). [vi],186pp. Original blue boards, lettered in gilt; a few faint spots to top edge, but a very good copy in the Beverly le Barrow dust-jacket — the jacket, barring some light spotting to verso and a hint of tanning to rear panel, also very good.

HILL, Susan (Dame Susan), 1942- : STRANGE MEETING.

HILL, Susan (Dame Susan), 1942- : STRANGE MEETING.

London : Hamish Hamilton, (1971). First edition. “The most interesting, original and encouraging novel from a young novelist for a long time ... her most ambitious novel to date, a delicate, oblique story, set mainly on the Western Front in the First World War, about a close relationship between two young infantry officers ... beautifully written, moving, lyrical, tense with the sights, smells and din of the Western Front” (Keith Brace, in the Birmingham Daily Post, 23rd October 1971).
Post 8vo (21cm). (224)pp. Original green boards, blocked and lettered in silver; top edge pink; a little bruised at extremities; a few faint marks, but a good copy in the silver George Mayhew dust-jacket — the jacket price-clipped by the publisher, with a revised price (£4.95 as opposed to the original £1.75) over-sticker, similarly bruised, rubbed in places, and a little marked and creased, but in reasonable state for an ill-thought-out production, not designed to last or to be handled.

HILL, Susan, 1942- : AIR AND ANGELS.

HILL, Susan, 1942- : AIR AND ANGELS.

London : Sinclair-Stevenson, (1991). First edition. Signed by Susan Hill on the title-page. “Thomas Cavendish, a distinguished cleric and don in his mid-fifties, lives with his spinster sister and collection of exotic birds. His life is celibate and irreproachable. He is the obvious man to be offered the mastership of this [Cambridge] college. But, walking by the river, Thomas sees a young girl in white standing on the bridge” – “As light as a feather but as powerful as flight” (The Observer).
Demy 8vo (23cm). [viii],(276),[iv]pp. Original blue boards, blocked and lettered in cream; a very good copy in the Robert Mason dust-jacket, also very good.
