The Confidential Agent.London, William Heinemann Limited, 1939 Stock Code: 124277
NotesFirst edition, first impression. This is one of the author's key pre-war mystery novels featuring an "intricate duel between good and evil", written in only six weeks (ODNB). Uncommon in the dust jacket.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in red, buff endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.
Contents lightly toned as usual, spine gently rolled but an excellent copy in the somewhat marked and frayed dust jacket with very small loss at the overlapping top edge. An excellent copy of a vulnerable late 1930s thriller.
