Notes

Proof copy printed on rectos only, page size 25 mm wider than the first edition. Bound for Ambler in the style of the first edition. Together with a copy of the first edition. Inscription to half-title "Corrected proofs, Eric Ambler 18 April 72", with his autograph corrections throughout, subsequently inscribed on title page "Tony Godwin from his friend Eric Ambler Oct 72". Ambler was the author of literary spy novels such as The Mask of Dimitrios, and his morally ambiguous thrillers forever altered the genre. Tony Godwin was a London bookseller who joined Penguin's senior editorial staff in 1960 and was responsible for the dramatic changes in the company's brand image during the following decade. He also served as editor at Weidenfeld & Nicholson for a short time.
