THE NIGHT MANAGER (Very Fine Pulped Version of Proof with Published Proof)
Hodder, UK 1993 - Hodder, UK. July 1993. This package includes the (virtually unknown) pulped version of the proof and the published proof, the pulped version being quite different from the published version in parts. There are substantial differences in the narrative, there are name changes etc. The published proof consists of 447 pages and 31 chapters, the pulped version has 476 pages and 30 chapters. We show one example and describe one. In the first line of chapter 29 the ship "Iron Pasha" is mentioned. In the unpublished version it is, however, named "Iron Duke". We include digital photos of each version's final page, which are completely different, as are other portions of the book. The colour distribution on the proofs' exterior is also quite different. Take a peek at the attached digital photos. The proofs are accompanied by a bookplate signed by John Le Carre. The insured courier service cost if very, very significantly higher than the postage quoted here. There really is no comparison, once the insurance premium is added. Both items are in superb, sharp, shiny, glossy boards with immaculate spine and virginal pages. Fewer than a handful of copies of the pulped proof are said to have escaped the pulping massacre. I know of only two and heard rumours of a third - just rumours. SUPERB CONDITION AND VERY, VERY RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
