    Shirley Jackson. The Haunting of Hill House. New York: 1959. First edition.

    More Information:

    Shirley Jackson. The Haunting of Hill House. New York: The Viking Press, 1959. First edition. Octavo. 246 pages. Publisher's yellow cloth backstrip over green cloth boards, front board and spine stamped in black, dust jacket. Jacket spine sunned, some rubbing and minor edgewear to jacket, some rubbing to binding, some foxing to endleaves and edge of text block. Still, a fine copy. From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.

    "A provocative and unsettling story in which Jackson achieves a perfect blurring of the boundary between supernatural intrusion and psychological projection. Tense, complex and brilliant in its depiction of the alienating power of loneliness and isolation... Filmed intelligently by Robert Wise in 1962." (Barron, Fantasy and Horror). Stephen King has called it one of the greatest horror novels of all time.
