“AN ATMOSPHERE OF NAMELESS DREAD, OF UNSPEAKABLE FOREBODING”: FIRST EDITION OF HIGHSMITH’S FOUND IN THE STREET

HIGHSMITH, Patricia. Found in the Street. London: Heinemann, (1986). Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $450.

First edition of Highsmith’s novel about sexual obsession. The true first edition, preceding the first American edition by one year.

One of the 20th-century’s premiere crime writers, Patricia Highsmith, who shared a birthday with Edgar Allan Poe, uses this story of a young woman stalked through the streets of New York’s Greenwich Village to again enmesh her readers in a trademark “atmosphere of nameless dread, of unspeakable foreboding… and there’s nothing quite like it” (Boston Globe). Precedes the first American edition by one year.

A fine copy.
