The Big Fear (originally published as 'The Marble Forest')

by Durrant, Theo

Condition: About Good


Toronto: Popular Library 507, 1953. When a doctor receives a telephone call informing him that his four-year-old daughter has been buried alive, with only a six-hour air supply, he makes a mad dash to a local graveyard "with his pretty secretary by his side" (you just know the ugly one wouldn't have gone with him) and starts digging randomly (our good doctor isn't blessed with a lot of calm), only to find himself involved with a couple of murders. 192 pages. Spine roll/slant, crosscrack, rubbing/impressions, thick crease diagonally across top right corner of front cover, thin crease to bottom right corner of same, nicks to edges at spine ends, tanning. The book is intact, but won't stand anything but the most agonizingly careful handling, so if you intend to actually read it rather than add it to the collection you'd better be prepared for disaster. For the book, not you. I mean, I'm not going to track you down and beat you up or anything -- I just want you to know that if you don't intend to use this to fill a hole in your collection, reading this dooms it to disintegration.. 1st Popular Library edition. Paperback. About Good. Sextodecimo -- from 5.75" to 6.75".
