The Ipcress File

£320.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1962, first edition first printing, hardback with dust jacket, 8vo, pp224.

The Ipcress File is Len Deighton’s classic first and first bestselling novel which introduced an ingenious and idiosyncratic writer of great talent who broke the mould of thriller writing. In this book, the nameless hero-narrator passes through a series of baffling but often wildly exciting adventures in the near east, on a Pacific atoll and (possibly) behind the Iron Curtain, to a climax as apparently improbable but factually unfaultable as life itself.

Very good condition book and jacket, There are two or three small dents on the front board and the tail of the spine is bumped but otherwise the orange cloth covered boards are clean, bright and undamaged. Internally, the book is clean and undamaged with just some light even tanning reflective of age. The binding is sound. The dust jacket is rubbed along its upper and lower edge and there two or three scrapes to the front surface but overall the damage is minor and the jacket complements what is a very nice copy of this book.
