Smiley's People

le Carré, John

  • Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
  • Condition: near fine
First edition, first impression (Hodder & Stoughton, 1980). Signed by the author to the title page with a crossed J, which is less common in more recent examples of his signature. Publisher's original blue cloth with lettering to spine in gilt, white endpapers and paste-downs. A little dustiness to top edge and small corner crease to a couple of pages, else fine and free from names and inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket has some of the usual sunning to spine and negligible traces of isolated rubbing to spine ends; lovely, bright and crisp otherwise and free from tears and creases. A near fine example of the third book in the Karla trilogy.
