HILL, Susan, 1942- : THE ENCLOSURE.

HILL, Susan, 1942- : THE ENCLOSURE.

London : Hutchinson & Co. (Publishers), (1961). First edition. Her scarce first novel, published while she was still an undergraduate. “What was the enclosure? Virginia saw it only as something from which she could not escape. As love declined, so the enclosure grew up around her ...”.
Post 8vo (21cm). (192)pp. Original black boards, ruled in red and blocked and lettered in white; mild spotting of edges and endpapers, but otherwise a very good copy in the Jillian Willett dust-jacket – a touch sunned, lightly marked and slightly creased, with a couple of unobtrusive short tears, but also very good.

£100

HILL, Susan, 1942- : I’M THE KING OF THE CASTLE.

HILL, Susan, 1942- : I’M THE KING OF THE CASTLE.

London : Hamish Hamilton, (1970). First edition. “Edmund did not want any other boy in the ugly, isolated Victorian house, set back behind the dark rhododendrons. It was his house, he was King here, in the empty attics, on the staircase, even in the Red Room, where his grandfather’s collection of rare moths lay, crumbling in the dusty glass cases ...”. Winner of the Somerset Maugham award.
Post 8vo (21cm). (252),[iv]pp. Original blue boards, blocked and lettered in gilt; top edge red; final text leaf creased, but otherwise a very good copy in the famous Bernard Higton dust-jacket – also very good, bright, and clean, barring a single nick and a very short tear to one corner.
