The author's first novel. The scarce first edition of the first novel by Ruth Rendell, introducing detective fiction readers for the first time to Inspector Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her novels. 'This subtle first novel departs from the well-trodden paths of crime to pose a problem which in its bizarre solution calls for compassion rather than condemnation' (introductory blurb).

Many copies of the first edition of From Doon with Death went into the public library system, so it is unusual to find spared ex-library markings to book or dust-jacket.

First edition of the author's first novel; 8vo; partly erased library stamps to pastedowns with further stamp to dedication page; publisher's green cloth lettered in white and yellow, dust-jacket designed by William Randell, some edge-wear, slightly chipped at spine ends, minor tape-burns to inner flaps but overall very good.
Provenance

Lyons Club Library, Cadby Hall, London (library stamps).
