This is an auction for DON'T LOOK NOW AND OTHER STORIES, by Daphne du Maurier.

This is a Folio Society hardback in new condition, in its original slip case.

Novella-length stories, all with different characters and themes but similar in that they touch on the supernatural or strange events.

The stories:

* "Don't Look Now" - A married couple travel to Venice following the accidental death of their daughter. They encounter two sisters who inform them that their daughter is trying to warn them of danger. Filmed in 1973.

* "The Apple Tree" follows the actions of a man who, following the death of his neglected wife, suspects her spirit inhabits an apple tree which he resolves to remove, but never gets around to doing. That is a mistake.

* "The Pool" - A girl is enticed into a magical world.

* "The Blue Lenses" – After several weeks recovering from eye-surgery a woman has her bandages removed. To her astonishment and horror people viewed through the implanted blue lenses are seen as cows, weasels, snakes, frogs etc.

* "Kiss Me Again, Stranger" - A shy mechanic follows a cinema usherette home from work and is led to a cemetery. The mechanic then discovers a terrible truth.

* "The Chamois" - A hunter travels to Kalabaka in the Pindus of Greece to hunt the elusive chamois.

* Not After Midnight" - A lonely teacher goes on a painting holiday in Crete and meets a strange American couple.

* "The Old Man" - A family history as told by a neighbour who suspects the father of killing one of their children.

* "The Birds" - Birds inexplicably begin attacking people. (Memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock.)
