The Intercom Conspiracy
London: Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 1970. London: Weidenfeld & Nicholson,, 1970. Octavo. Original grey boards, titles to spine in purple, top edge purple. With the dust jacket. Literary agent Peter Janson-Smith's compliments slip on the front free endpaper. Small abraded spot on front board. An excellent copy in a lightly rubbed jacket. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed on the half title to the author's friend the historian Mortimer Chambers, "Mort, with best wishes, from Eric Ambler". Loosely inserted are a double-sided autograph letter signed with its envelope and an autograph postcard signed. In the letter, which is written in a warm, informal tone, and dated 29 April 74, Ambler mentions having delivered a new novel "(weight of typescript: 4 kg.)", amusingly recalls sliding "some 20 metres downhill on [his] backside" on a mountain near Freiburg in 1932 and describes in depth how he recycled the first chapter of an abandoned novel into the short story 'The Blood Bargain', begging his friend to "keep his guilty secret".
