Wrappers sunned at margins and spine and a bit soiled; upper corner bumped.

Dealer Notes
The proof copy was signed for the present owner at a private function in 1984 where the author was the guest speaker.
As indicated by the label, the original title was changed somewhere along the line. The literary agent Elaine Greene was a sister-in-law of Graham Greene, having been married to his brother Hugh Greene.
