The Mysterious Bookshop

Boileau & Narcejac, The Prisoner

London, Hutchinson, 1957.  First edition in English, translated from the French by Geoffrey Sainsbury.  By the authors of the books on which such films as Vertigo and Diabolique were based.  A very fine, tight copy in a bright, fresh dust jacket with a bit of wear at spinal extremities and corners.  Very scarce.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
