The Ministry of Fear. An Entertainment.
London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1943, Espionage novel. FIRST EDITION. 8vo., pp. 236. Publisher's golden yellow cloth (also issued in lemon yellow), in the scarce original printed dust-wrapper. Conforming with wartime economy, the wrapper has been printed twice, the verso showing the fine pictoral design for Tamara Karsavina's Theatre Street. Jacket panels are generally clean, spine is a shade sunned with an area of loss to head (not affecting text) and a loss to the lower edge of rear (again not affecting any printing). A used, but attractive copy of a rare book in jacket.A fine spy thriller, undoubtedly drawing upon Greene's own wartime experiences in both the Ministry of Information and Foreign Office; this is the story of a man who finds himself caught up in an international espionage ring in London during the Blitz. Basis for the famous 1944 film noir, directed by Fritz Lang. Wobbe [A18a]; Miller [22]
