A remarkably clean copy of the first edition of this work. The smallest amount of wear to the head and foot of the spine and bumping to the fore-edges. Many copies of this first edition were destroyed when a bomb fell on the publishers’ warehouse district around Fleet Street during the Blitz. One of Greene’s scarcest titles. Small stamp ‘colonial edition’ to the rear free end paper.
