The Books of Blood [Six Volumes, All Signed]

Notes: A classic of modern horror with one of the greatest taglines of all time: "Everybody is a book of blood; Wherever we're opened, we're red." The novel was originally published in six paperback editions in 1984 and 1985. Almost immediately, Weidenfeld & Nicolson put out this six-volume hardcover edition, with publication dates in 1985 and 1986. Immediately following those editions were collected editions in various forms, making the bibliography of this title more thorny than most 1980s fiction titles.

This version, in six stand-alone hardcover volumes with dust jackets illustrated with Barker's own paintings, is for many collectors the most desirable edition.

Edition + Condition: First hardcover editions (first printings, with no indication of later printings) of all six volumes. The pages are tanned, as usual, but the books are otherwise near fine to fine in like dust jackets. On top of that, all six books have been signed by Clive Barker on the title pages.

Publication: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1985–1986.
