First edition, first printing. Original purple cloth with blue titles to the spine, lacking the scarce dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little rubbing at the extremities and some toning of the spine, the titles remaining clear. The contents with a previous owner's inscription crossed out to the front pastedown and the blank front endpaper removed are otherwise clean throughout with just a little light spotting to the early and late pages.

A classic and influential thriller, the basis of several film, television and radio adaptations.
