First edition, first impression of the author’s first book. With the author’s signed presentation inscription to an early blank, “Dear Mr Huggill, This is just in case you can spare the time to read the work – I hope you can. Yours sincerely Eric Ambler”. The recipient was a close friend of the author’s father who had, as Ambler recalled, seen an advertisement for the book but “didn’t propose to go any further”. A scarce title by any standards and rare inscribed.

Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine in black, blue endpapers. Spine very slightly faded as usual but an excellent copy.
