Description:
New York: Reynal, Hitchcock, Inc, 1941. Written in collaboration with Lewis Galantiere, Gontran de Poncins' Kabloona recounts the French aristocrat's solo unsupported journey in the Canadian Arctic, where he lived with the Inuit for nearly 15 months between 1938 and 1939. Bored with the business world, curiosity drew de Poncins to exotic areas throughout the world; his unique technique in relaying his observations of the cultures he discovered was not scientific, but provided stylized personal points of view and descriptions. Initially describing the Inuit way of life as primitive and inferior, de Poncins soon experienced a deep spiritual awakening after undergoing weeks of hardship in the Arctic and became so well-adapted to the lifestyle he was essentially adopted by the Inuit.

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974-1979. First editions of each title in the author's acclaimed Karla Trilogy. Octavo, original cloth, 3 volumes. Each volume is signed by John le Carre on a bookplate to the title page. Each is near fine in near fine dust jackets. An exceptional set, uncommon in this condition and signed. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered instant praise for Le Carre as "[t]he premier spy novelist of his time. Perhaps of all time" (Time). "Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek). Le Carre’s inspiration drew from his experience of the revealing of the Cambridge Five traitors in the 1950s and ‘60s (Anthony, 2009), and the novel’s popularity can be seen in relation to those shocking events. In 2011, the novel was adapted into a successful film, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, and it received three nominations at the 84th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Actor.
