First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Theo Bergström designed dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding firm with a little bumping at the base of the spine. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has a couple of closed tears at the flap folds but remains bright and without loss. Not price-clipped (£3.25 net to the front flap).
Signed and underlined by John Braine in black ink on the title page, uncommon thus. A spy thriller.
