First edition, first printing. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering to the spine, in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The cloth is a little faded, most noticeably to and around the spine, where the gilt is a little dulled. The blue topstain is also a little faded. Complete with the near fine dustwrapper, with a few marks to the rear panel and some minor toning to the spine. Correctly priced 13s 6d net to the front flap. Altogether, an attractive example.
One of Greene's best known novels, twice adapted for film; the first in 1958 directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and starring Audie Murphy, Michael Redgrave and Giorgia Moll; the second, a more faithful adaptation in 2002 directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Michael Caine, Brendan Fraser and Do Thi Hai Yen.
