Description:
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1963. Near fine in near fine jacket.. First printing of Le Carré's masterpiece of moral ambiguity in Cold War espionage. Le Carré's third novel and his first extraordinary success, set in a post-war Germany newly divided by the Berlin Wall.

THE SPY... was winner of the Gold Dagger award for best crime novel and the Edgar Award for best mystery novel, from the UK and US crime and mystery writing societies respectively; the first book to be so honored by both associations.
