DU MAURIER, Daphne (author). Apple Tree; a short novel and several long stories. London; Victor Gollancz Ltd. 1952.

8vo. Original rose pink cloth lettered in gilt to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [iv], 5-264; a remarkably clean copy, both externally and internally, without ownership marks or inscriptions, in an unusually fresh and crisp, unclipped dustwrapper (10/6) with a little mild dulling to spine, small rubbing to spine ends, and a tiny surface nick (3mm) to lower joint.
First edition. Notably this collection includes the first appearance in print of Du Maurier's most celebrated short story 'The Birds', which was developed into a horror film, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, in 1963 by Universal Pictures.
