First American Edition. Paperback. 8 1/4" X 5 1/2". 256pp. Advance review copy in plain printed wraps with introduction by Walter J. Minton, President of G. P. Putnam's Sons, to upper wrap. Moderate wear to binding, with dampstain to top of spine and wraps, sunning, edgewear, and creasing to spine, on which the title is handwritten. Very occasional spot of soiling to pages, else unmarked. A nice pre-publication copy of Derek Marlowe's first book, the inspiration for the 1968 Cold War thriller film starring Laurence Harvey, Tom Courtenay, and Mia Farrow. Good. Item #3124
