Notes 1st edition, 1st printing - and this author's first novel. SIGNED by the author on the title page. The publisher's wrap-around DJ belly band is fully intact and unfaded (held in place by the removable DJ protector; not glued to the DJ). The book is in Fine condition - straight, clean, tight with only minimal softening of the cloth at the spine ends. It's bound in yellow boards with an embossed design on the front panel and a red cloth spine with gilt lettering. The dustjacket is Near Fine. It has no chips or tears, but the spine is sunned about one shade (you can see the original yellow under the belly band) though the red lettering of the author's name isn't faded at all. There's also a very narrow with no color loss surface scratch on the front panel near the outer edge that you can see when you hold the book slanted just right in bright light. No other faults. Really a remarkable copy of this author's scarce first novel, particularly since signed and with the belly band with Eric Ambler's endorsement intact and unfaded. ; 8-1/2" x 5-3/4" x 1-1/8"; 278 pages; Signed by Author
