On the up-side, this is a first edition, clean, tight pages. Minor shelf wear to the cover (besides the library sticker). The spine is slightly relaxed, but on the whole, a very nice copy. This is the book from which Steven King stole the Great Bear in his Gunslinger series. If you have read those stories, this is a must-read for you.

4.5" x 7" x 2". 717 pages. Scar on spine. Crease on front cover. Wear to the corners and edges. Used paperback in Good condition. "The Classic Tale of the Supernatural" A tragedy - "The Lancashire Witches is Harrison Ainsworth's classic romance of the supernatural, as vast and forbidding, as wild and inspiring, as bleak and as savage as windswept Pendle Hill itself."
