The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.
New York: Coward-McCann, Inc, 1964. First American edition, second printing of le Carre's classic work, which went on to reinvigorate the spy genre. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Le Carre on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of rubbing. Jacket design by Ben Feder. Upon publication, John le Carre's The Spy Who Came in From the Cold forever changed the landscape of spy fiction. Le Carre combined the inside knowledge of his years in British intelligence with the skills of the best novelists to produce a story as taut as it is twisting, unlike any previously experienced. "The best spy story I have ever read" (Graham Greene). It was the basis for the 1965 film directed by Martin Ritt and starring Richard Burton, Claire Bloom, and Oskar Werner. It received several awards, including four BAFTA Awards for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, and Best Art Direction. For his performance, Richard Burton also received the David di Donatello Award for Best Foreign Actor, the Golden Laurel Award, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role.
