        Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974. First British edition of the author's seventh novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John le Carre on the title page in a contemporary signature. Near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket with some wear and rubbing to the extremities. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered instant praise for Le Carre as "[t]he premier spy novelist of his time. Perhaps of all time" (Time). "Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek). Le Carre's inspiration drew from his experience of the revealing of the Cambridge Five traitors in the 1950s and ‘60s (Anthony, 2009), and the novel's popularity can be seen in relation to those shocking events. In 2011, the novel was adapted into a successful film, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, and it received three nominations at the 84th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Actor. This successful production is but one of Le Carre's numerous accolades in espionage fiction. He was awarded both the Helmerich Award and the Goethe Medal, and, in 2008, The Times ranked Le Carré 22nd on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945."

All first issue points present: 'First Edition' written on the copyright page, and P6 gutter code on last page as called for. Dust jacket is correctly priced at $5.95. Condition: near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The only flaw to the book is the previous owner's name neatly written in red ink on the ffep. Otherwise a beautiful and unread copy. Clean, bright with no bumps, no foxing, no nothing. The dust jacket is near fine with only one flaw: a stain on the spine just above the 'S' of Stephen King as pictured. Otherwise, not clipped and no other wear. Great value. We also have a mint condition copy in stock with an amazing inscription which, however, is priced at a considerable premium compared to this near fine copy. ‘Carrie’, the master of horror’s debut novel has been adapted multiple times as feature films, theatre plays and Broadway Musicals. It launched King’s long and successful career and the man has never stopped writing since. A landmark novel. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

One of these days I must devise a short story with something frightful happening at the junction, possibly all the little groups of people turning alive and demo-ing against their Creator!" SEE second letter.- I do hope you got your Telegraph in time yesterday to turn to the tv programmes because on Westward at 9.10 Dave Allen the Irishman (like Jeremy Thorpe I would dine with him by candlelight) interviewed a group of eccentrics and the last of these was a man and his wife who had a private railway like Pic's and were so bemused by it that they wore Guard's clothes and lived on the spot, abd [sic] I thought what an extraordinary coincidence it was that I should have seen two of these railways in one day. The wife did look a bit mad, so perhas it is a good thing you keep yourself apart at Chapel Point - and watch out for Pic getting himself into uniform and waving a green flag.- Tomorrow the polls, and I fear Doom lies ahead (this letter dated the eve of the general election that was won by Harold Wilson with a tiny majority, during a turbulent political time in the UK, although slightly frustratingly the author does not declare which result spelled doom!A second typed letter to God Pick {both sic}, dated 7 years later than the first."Dear God Pick,I am truly flattered that you should think of me for writing a book about the railway folk coming alive. Its no good. Ideass [sic] have to ome [sic] from wthin myself. But its a lovely thought , so why not have a shot at it yourself? You will see I cant even type properly these days. Either my eyes or my brain, what there is of it! It was lively [sic] seeing both Cynthia and Ursula {author's cousins}and will you thank dear Sheila for her honeycombLove to you allDaphne.
