        Call for the Dead. A Novel of Intrigue by John Le Carre.

      New York, Walker and Company, 1962.. First American Edition of the author's first book. 8°. 192 pages. Original Hardcover (green cloth) with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good+ condition with only minor signs of external wear. Dustjacket in very good or better condition with minor chip to upper spine of the jacket only. Subtle blindstamp-exlibris of preowner to titlepage.. Call for the Dead is John le Carre's first novel, published in 1961. It introduces George Smiley, the most famous of le Carre's recurring characters, in a story about East German spies inside Great Britain. The book starts with a chapter describing Smiley's earlier career (including his unlikely marriage to and unsurprising separation from Lady Ann Sercombe, a beautiful and promiscuous aristocrat), his recruitment by a lecturer in Oxford and his work in locating promising young Germans with "agent potential" and recommending them for recruitment by the British service prior to WWII. One of these was Dieter Frey, a young German Communist who at the time had a common cause with Smiley in fighting the Nazis and also became his personal friend. Because of the Cold War, Frey had become Smiley's foe, while in a way still remaining his friend. When meeting Smiley again, in the fog near the Thames, Frey greets Smiley with "Servus, George!" before commencing the battle. After killing him, Smiley feels extremely guilty: Dieter was dead, and he had killed him. The broken fingers of his right hand, the stiffness of his body and the sickening headache, the nausea of guilt, all testified to this. And Dieter had let him do it, had not fired the gun, had remembered their friendship when Smiley had not. They had fought in a cloud, in the rising steam of the river, in a clearing in timeless forest: they had met, two friends rejoined, and fought like beasts. Dieter had remembered and Smiley had not. Dieter Frey is the first of several considerably sympathetic Jewish/Communist characters appearing in the le Carre books, followed by Liz Gold and Fiedler in The Spy Who Came in From the Cold.
