        Icebreaker

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1983. First edition of the third novel by John Gardner featuring Ian Fleming's secret agent, James Bond. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Gardner on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Uncommon signed. Mel Watkins writing in The New York Times Book Review praised Gardner for adding "a touch of the plot subtlety of less insistently action-oriented thrillers." He also applauded Gardner's updating of Bond. "Although Mr. Gardner's Bond is less raffishly macho and arrogant than previously depicted," observed Watkins, "the spirit of the 007 series remains intact, and few Fleming admirers are likely to object. There is, in fact, something appealing about a James Bond who can react to women with some sympathy and confusion at a crucial moment."

Three First Printings, all in highly collectible condition. 8vo's; 317, [1]; [12], 282; [12], 227, [1]pp. Legs (Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, 1975): Publisher's cream paper-covered boards and black cloth spine stamped gilt, with decorative end papers; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $8.95. Fine and apparently unread with one bumped tip; in a just about Fine jacket, the spine ends very lightly rubbed and creased. Billy Phelan (Viking Press, 1978): Publisher's grey cloth, the spine stamped silver; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $9.95. Fine and unread, the binding square and very tight; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine tips lightly rubbed, the back panel with several creases and short closed tears. Ironweed (Viking Press, 1983): First State, with "perceivced" for perceived on page 205, line 22; in a First Issue jacket with a blurb from Saul Bellow (Kennedy's mentor) on the front panel and no author's photo. Publisher's grey cloth spine lettered in silver and black paper-covered boards; in a pictorial dust jacket priced at $14.75. A Fine, unread copy, marred only by faint dust-spotting to the fore- and top edges; in a Fine, bright, unfaded jacket. Albany is the crucible where Kennedy's Irish immigrants-machine politicians and lowlifes, oucasts and swells, many members of the author's fictional Phelan family-have come to forge their version of the American dream. "Inevitable comparisons to James Joyce and his delineations of his native Dublin abound in discussions of Kennedy's work, and the American author's selective use of stream of consciousness and stylistic experimentation enhance the comparisons." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Albany Cycle's crowning achievement, following Legs and Billy Phelan's Greatest Game, is Ironweed, awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction and generally acknowledged as Kennedy's masterpiece. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.
