About This Item

London: Gollancz, 1963. A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1963. A near fine book (one small name to the head of the endpaper) - no fading or browning to the spine. Appears unread. In a very good unclipped wrapper which is not price clipped. Some off-setting to the rear panel and a few marks. Spine a little faded. A little wear to the spine tips. SIGNED without dedication to the title page. Signed by Le Carre in the Autumn of 2018.

Synopsis

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a novel by British author John le Carré. Set during the political tensions of the Cold War, the revolutionary espionage novel portrays the intelligence services of both Eastern and Western nations as sacrificing morality in the name of national security. The Spy Who Came in from the Cold received critical acclaim at the time of its publication and became an international bestseller. Named “Best Crime Novel” by the Crime Writers' Association in 1963 and “Best Mystery Novel” by the Mystery Writers of America in 1965, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold was the first work to win the award from both writing organizations. Additionally, it was named the “Best spy novel of all-time” by Publisher’s Weekly and is listed as one of the All-Time 100 Novels by Time magazine.
