Description

    Richard Matheson: I Am Legend. (New York: Walker and Co., 1970), first hardcover edition, 122 pages, white boards with black lettering on spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Deckled fore-edge. Jacket design by Lena Fong Hor. Jacket illustration by Jack Gaughan. This novel was very influential on subsequent generations of horror novelists. The story centers around a character named Robert Neville, who is one of the last survivors of a bacterial pandemic that turns its victims into vampire-like nocturnal baddies. Neville spends his days venturing from his fortified house to kill the infected survivors. Interestingly, this novel has been adapted into two films thus far, with a third on the way. The copy presented here is very good, with some minor wear to the edges, and some age-toning around the edges of the book and dust jacket, which is itself in very good condition. I Am Legend is scarce in this condition, and an absolute must-have for any collector of horror fiction. From the Ventura Collection.
