Hodder & Stoughton 1937 - First edition. Original blue cloth with black lettering in pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper, which just shows minor wear to the corners at the head of the spine, but is exceptionally bright and crisp. Eric Ambler is widely regarded (with Somerset Maugham and Graham Greene) as a principal pioneer of politically sophisticated thrillers. The five books that Ambler wrote between 1936 and 1940, upon which his reputation rests, are novels of complexity and realism, in which he introduced ordinary protagonists who are thrust into political intrigue they are ill prepared to deal with. In the process he paved the way for such writers as Len Deighton and John Le Carre, who described Ambler's novels as "the well into which everybody had dipped". Uncommon Danger is the author's second book and, in our experience, is his scarcest as a first edition in dustwrapper. No copies have been offered at auction for the last thirty years, and we can recall only one other copy approaching this condition offered for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
