INNOCENT BLOOD (The Blood Tie) (proof copy)
Edition: First Edition
London: Faber, 1980. Uncorrected proof. Octavo, pale green non-pictorial card covers. Binding is yellowed to the spine and margins of covers, text paper lightly toned, soft ripples to front cover and upper margin of early leaves, VG otherwise, no owner names. Most interestingly, this scarce proof reveals a last minute title change. The printed title on the front cover "The Blood Tie" has been crossed out by hand and "Innocent Blood" hand-written above, but the original title remains on the spine, half-title, and title page. Very scarce advance issue.
