"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me": First edition of Daphne du Maurier's masterpiece Rebecca

Rebecca.

DU MAURIER, Daphne.

Item Number: 89084

London: Victor Gollancz Limited, 1938.

First edition of du Maurier’s masterpiece later made into the Oscar-winning 1940 film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with one small closed tear and light rubbing to the extremities. A nice example.

"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me". These famous opening lines later became one of the most famous opening words ever recorded in Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning 1940 film of the same name. Rebecca is certainly Du Maurier's most famous novel and one that many others after her attempted to imitate, as a resurgence of romantic mystery novels came soon after its publication. The Mystery Writers of America have named Rebecca among the top ten Mystery Novels of All Time.
