1 Fowles, John The Collector
Boston Little, Brown, and Company 1963 First Edition Hard Cover 
[1963]. Very Good in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full brick-red cloth. The spine is stamped in crimson and gilt. Octavo. Brilliant yellow endpapers and topstain. 305pps. Stated First American Edition. There is mild bumping and rubbing to the tips and the spine-ends, a previous owner's name is neatly penned on the front pastedown, and there is modest reading wear including a small tear with attendant creasing at the bottom of page 73. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has mild touches of rubbing to the rear panel and has a small nick at the head of the spine; the original price (4.95)is intact. Basis of the 1965 film starring Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar.

"...He tells the story first -- Frederick Clegg, an obscure little clerk and a collector of butterflies who one day goes on to net his finest specimen, Miss Miranda Grey, a soft, lovely twenty-year-old.
In his colorless yet curiously expressive words, he tells of the months in which he stood by the office window and watched for the beautiful Miranda whenever she was home from art school. Then Frederick suddenly wins a fortune in a football pool and devises an ingenious way to make his dream come true.
He buys a secluded country house and, when all preparations have been made, kidnaps Miranda from outside her apartment in London.
The body of the novel concerns the two months during which Miranda is held prisoner in the cellar of the house..."
