About this Item

FIRST EDITION of Bloch's masterpiece, the basis for the classic Alfred Hitchcock film. "There was a murder case in a small Wisconsin town near the one where I lived -- I had no details concerning it at the time, but I knew that it involved a middle-aged man who murdered several women. Realizing how much gossip there is in a small town and how neighbors tend to pry into every else's affairs, I wondered just what kind of man, and what circumstances, might be involved in such a crime without anyone suspecting, working from these questions, I came up with the plot of PSYCHO. Years later I learned that I'd come pretty close to the actual situation, as brought out after investigations were completed -- except that the actual murderer was also a cannibal, and even more disturbed than my imaginary character" (Robert Bloch). New York: Simon and Schuster, 1959. Octavo, original half-cloth, original dust jacket. Browning to paper as always (poor paper stock); just a hint of edgewear to beautiful dust jacket. An outstanding copy. $2800. Bookseller Inventory # 37
