A fine copy of the book, gilt lettering sharp and fresh, text block (including all edges) bright and clean. Retaining most of the original first issue dust jacket, lacking 3/4 of spine, front cover & flap present. Back cover - with Graham Green's description- chipped along margins, with some closed tears affecting 2 words of  Green's blurb. Housed in solander box.
