Tall, Dark and Gruesome - Christopher Lee (First ed.)
This is the first edition of the autobiography of the star of the folk horror film, The Wicker Man, and it makes a perfect gift for fans of the movie. In the final chapters of the book Christopher Lee talks about his roles in, and the making of, the Dennis Wheatley films including The Devil Rides Out and To the Devil a Daughter. A fascinating life story. This copy includes a note taped to the front free endpaper inscribed by the author: 'Clifford Grandy, My Best, Christopher Lee.'
Edition. London, W.H. Allen. 1977. First Edition. 284pp.
Volume and condition. 9" x 5.5" Original publisher's blue cloth, titled in gilt to the spine. A little rubbing and light wear here and there, in a strikingly excellent example of the dustwrapper. A very good copy indeed, made more so by the addition of the inscribed note taped to the front free endpaper (the tape has stained the page somewhat).
